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

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. :)
Check out my firefly photo and words on flickr.
Ooh, nice! I’m sure you were thrilled to get that shot! I know I would have been.
Well, at least you got one! :-D
Ha ha! True!
The guy who said the best camera is the one you have with you clearly hasn’t tried using some of these cameras. : – )
Definitely! I really enjoy my iPhone’s camera for the most part, but it is absolutely TERRIBLE in any sort of low light conditions.
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.
