One Word Photo Challenge: Firefly


We do not have fireflies in Switzerland, at least I have never seen one here. It is probably too cold and would put their fire out. However, necessity is the mother of invention. This afternoon, as if ordered, I had an annoying fly buzzing around my workplace on the computer. This was ideal. The fly swatter was near, as you never know when you must defend yourself from the enemy and the fly was sitting on the computer. I swatted the unexpecting fly and he was killed immediately. Not that you think animals were harmed in the making of this blog. He never felt a thing, it was a sudden death. Afterwards I transferred the corpse to a piece of paper, and found a flame maker, which we use for igniting fondue cookers etc. That was the secret behind the composition of this photo of a firefly. I would add it was quite complicated lighting the the flame and taking the photo with one hand with my mobile phone, but where there is a will there is a way.
