13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Firefly Glow

In the Czech Republic where I grew up, I only saw fireflies a couple of times, deep in the forest. When I came to the United States, I was shocked and thrilled to see the abundance of fireflies and their amazing glow. I was happy to photograph this firefly as it lit upon a blade of grass. I did not manipulate this photo in any way. This is a first time I was able to capture firefly in almost complete darkness with such bright glow.
