Firefly Reflections

I took this photo of fireflies (lightning bugs) over the pool of water in almost complete darkness using the latest low light camera technology. I have witnessed one of the most amazing and magical natural phenomena – fireflies that synchronize. It is mystery why they synchronize, but it is surely beautiful sight to see them flash simultaneously.
