Nice work
on these firefly images.

thanks, i am a photographer with a cheap camera, not a bugologist, but bugs are something you can take good pictures of with a cheap camera. fireflies are the perfect subject. got to use that flash.

i really like bugguide, the way it is designed, i just found it.

I realized you were a newcomer here, and that you seem to know your bugs. When you get a chance, put a few lines about yourself on your profile page, reachable by clicking on your name.
