Beautiful summer nights full of fireflies and stars

Of his magical-looking evenings observing the stars, the lightning, and the glowing summer insects of Ithaca, New York, Michael Roman writes:

I confess, I spent many–perhaps too many–nights this summer standing around in dark fields repeatedly photographing fireflies. Now, as the nights grow cooler and the firefly season is behind us, I decided I’d look back by stringing together all my images from this summer’s campaign and roughly edit them to music to create a frenetic little firefly compilation movie. The music is from Michael Nyman‘s score to Drowning by Numbers.

Enjoy the results of his standing around: Fireflies, Summer 2011.
