A ghost of everyone’s summer dreams,
a firefly waits out the last traces of winter.

    I really love this shot. It’s amazing. I’ve looked at it several times and am impressed more each time I see it. Fantastic Photography!

    Love your lightening bug shots. We were discussing how to do it, as I
    have had no luck. (And then I see yours in my stream. At least I now
    know it can be done:) Thank you, Rick.
