13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Firefly Up-close

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 up. I did not manipulate this photo in any way.
