Fire bugs...

There is a time in a late Georgia Spring, that all the fireflies come out. It is only at twilight and it only lasts for about a week. I was able to visit a few of my good friends this spring (two other artists) when the stars alined (so to speak) and I was able to see fireflies. This illustration was made before that trip- and I am sorry to tell you that my painting has a huge error. Fireflies are not white when they glow- they are green. At least that is what they are in GA. And that is why you research before you hand in the final drawing.

So to anyone who was offended by illustrating white fireflies; I apologize.
