"I was spending the Fourth of July back in Nebraska, in the farmhouse where I grew up, and there were more fireflies that summer than I'd ever seen. I went out to the dirt road behind the house and shot this using a long exposure, just after sunset."—Rachel Blaser

  1. I am not embarrassed at all to announce that when I saw the image before the description, I literally cried out loud, "OMGFAIRIES!" (Pronounced, "oh-muh-guy-fay-reez!")

  2. That would be "guh." "Oh muh guh," not "guy."

    Also, my captcha was "horcave," which leads me to believe that the captcha robot has recently watched the end of HBP and the scene with the horcrux cave.

  3. You made me laugh out loud both times, CN. And I could really use the laugh, so thanks. xo
