Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: How Not to Take Firefly Photos

There’s a right way to take photos of firefly flashes in the dark.  This is not it:

bad fireflies

World’s worst firefly photo?

Apparently iPhones just aren’t capable of taking night photos.  Look at that one tiny little yellow streak up there!  Sorta sad and lonely on an otherwise lovely, firefly filled night.

  1. Awwww . . . . but! You captured it in your heart :) Sometimes cameras just get in the way.

    • Agreed! Honestly, I was having so much fun chasing lightning bugs with the kids at the firefly event that I completely forgot about using my camera until it was a little too late, it was a little too dark for my camera, and the beetles were starting to move away. Oh well! It was more fun chasing them anyway. :)

  2. Check out my firefly photo and words on flickr.

  3. Well, at least you got one! :-D

  4. The guy who said the best camera is the one you have with you clearly hasn’t tried using some of these cameras. : – )

  5. you may have missed the fireflys, but you captured the black bear nicely!

    • Ha ha! Maybe! I was actually out there all night last night and we kept hearing something crashing through the trees. We did consider the possibility it could be a bear, though I’d be impressed if there was a bear in the city.

Have something to say?
