Photuris mysticalampas fireflies

Title: Mystical Lantern, 2016

Mystical lantern firefly (Photuris mysticalampas) in the Atlantic white cedar forest in Delaware. This is a very magical species that glows very slowly in the swampy forest, and gives you feeling like you were among fairies.

I took the photo in June with Christopher Heckscher, PhD. who was the first to discover, name and describe this species. Photuris mysticalampas is possibly endangered by habitat loss, since it lives most likely in very small area. I was happy to help document it. Note the rising moon in the photo.

Multiple 30 second exposures.

Blue Ghost Firefly, North Carolina

Title: Blue Ghost, 2014

Enigmatic Blue Ghost Firefly
Something inspired me to climb to an overlook in the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, despite darkness creeping slowly in and I was the last one on the mountain. On the way up I froze in my tracks when I saw a large black bear on the path. He saw me and quietly disappeared in the shady growth. Hesitantly with quite a good deal of fear I continued up the overlook, looking around if I see the bear. When I reached the overlook it was almost dark and I could see barely anything. I quickly started walking back so I can see my path and I slowed down in the spot where I saw the bear. I looked around, being quiet. Suddenly I saw little lights floating around. Within few minutes, in the small growth, I saw little fairies quietly glowing and floating around just above ferns. These are so called Blue Ghost Fireflies, know by dim long lasting glow. Their glow can last for many seconds, even up to a minute. I started to photograph, and had a great experience. I have a feeling the bear knew the whole time where I was. I find this photo quite psychedelic. Enjoy.

Photo details: single exposure, 49.6 seconds long.

Title: Firefly and Moon

In this photo you can see illuminated firefly and a moon filtered through tall grasses. To take this photo, I have waited for the right day when moon was low on the horizon and climbed deep into a ditch below the road so I would get a lower angle and a direct view of the moon through the grass.

Signaling Female Firefly, Photinus Pyralis

Title:Signaling Female, 2013

In this photograph is a female firefly of a common Midwest species Photinus Pyralis. This female is sending a signal so her future mate can find her. Notice that her signal light is focused to the small "box" shape area in her abdomen, contrary to male fireflies, that have larger light organs.

I am particulary excited about the clarity of this image, which can be easily enlarged to a very large print.
