    I think deep down I'm still 5, because last night I had an incredible amount of fun catching fireflies.

      I owe some thanks to people again, it looks like. I'm so glad that people like this photo... it's probably my favorite in my entire stream, and if for some reason I could only leave one photograph on Flickr, this would be it. Not to be a total sap, but I owe a lot to these fireflies -- they've brought a whole lot of good into my life. So thank you everyone for stopping by to look, and for the comments and faves. I appreciate it -- and you -- all very much.

      Oh lord. Taking a stroll down memory lane.
      The last time I did that was last week.
      So it's not that much of a stroll.

      I use to get a canning jar from my neighbor and light up the dirt paths when I went on adventures around the countryside.

      Amazing Job!

      Oh, this is just perfect on so many levels. I miss catching "lightning bugs" as we called them back in Maine. Beautiful, well-timed, provocative photo!! Love it, wish I could fav it 12 times.

      OldhaMedia's story is so awesome! My daughters have never seen fireflies, and I imagine that is exactly what they would think of them as well..."faeries in the garden!" I certainly wouldn't correct them. :)

      Great pic!!! I was searching for a photo of a firefly in a jar to post on my blog. My family and I just moved to Iowa and saw fireflies for the first time...what an amazing sight! And I wanted to post a picture for my friends and family back home so they could see what a firefly looks thank you so much!!!

      fun (+ magic )
