Translation of blog entry 蛍@北房 (correct me if i err):

Firefly @ Hokubo Town (北房町)

D100 & SIGMA 20 mm F1.8 EX DG ASPHERICAL RFD70 & AF-S VR Zoom Nikkor ED 70-200 mm F2.8G (IF) In Manual Mode ISO1600/30 seconds/noise reduction on

The fireflies swarm together at 8 o'clock. We had a second attempt to shoot again because the background was not reflected well yesterday. The place is a garden city north of Hokubo Town...
I put out the light of the star and car with a layer mask (^-^;)

The aesthetics of the firefly is best kept minimal
1. The fireflies are not caught
2. I do not impose on the residents
3. The flashlight and headlights of my car are not turned towards the fireflies

I want to see them, but I also want to protect them. It cannot simply be captured on a mobile phone camera, on film or a digital camera with flash, as the flash burns out the impression of the firefly.
The tripod does it for me (^o^)


D70&AF-S VR Zoom Nikkor ED 70-200mm F2.8G(IF)


1. ホタルを採らない。
2. 住民の迷惑になる行為はつつしむ。
3. 車のヘッドライト・懐中電灯やカメラのフラッシュをホタルに向けない。
