The insect world is an astonishing place. So many colors, shapes and patterns. Macros of live insects are endlessly fascinating to me.

Endangered! Lightening bugs, as I grew up calling them, are endangered now! Let's stop with the stadium lighting of our houses at night, the chemicals in our yards, cut our grass a bit taller and less often, and allow a little of the natural composting under our trees and shrubs! www.firefly.org Closeup Photo of Firefly
Lampyridae is a family of insects in the beetle order Coleoptera. They are winged beetles, and commonly called fireflies or lightning bugs for their conspicuous crepuscular use of bioluminescence to attract mates or prey. Fireflies produce a "cold light", with no infrared or ultraviolet frequencies. This chemically produced light from the lower abdomen may be yellow, green, or pale-red. About 2,000 species of firefly are found in temperate and tropical environments.
Such an amazing sight on a warm summers night, firefly! #bug #animal
