Elusive

Fireflies. I tried for two evenings to get this photo, and I’m still not entirely satisfied.

At dusk they appear to be everywhere in our yard, but it turns out they’re everywhere except in the place where I point my camera, wherever that is. Meanwhile, the invisible mosquitoes really are everywhere; worse: they all seem to know exactly where I am.

Funny how some things can be found only where you’re not looking for them, while others manage to find you even when you don’t want to be found.
