“Fireflies, also known as Lightning Bugs, are not flies or bugs, they are actually beetles (order Coleoptera). The blinking light from a firefly comes from a chemical reaction called bioluminescence. They appear in my backyard every year in the Spring and they always fascinate me. Luckily, I was able to temporarily capture a few to be able to study their interesting detail, or I couldn’t have done this painting showing some of them up close!
My concept here is this inquisitive Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) runs into them and wonders about their luminescence... are they stars that have fallen to Earth?”
