Fireflies in Nuevo Leo'n, Me'xico

May 10, 2021


Photographer: Pavel Vorobiev
Summary Author: Pavel Vorobiev

In many parts of the middle latitudes and tropics, fireflies appear
in great quantities during spring and early summer, particularly on
evenings that are warm and humid. Fireflies, also known as lightning
bugs or glow worms, emit light in the 510-610 nm portion of
the visible spectrum, primarily to attract mates. The photo above
shows the density of lightning bug traffic in Cienega de Gonzalez,
Nuevo Leo'n, Me'xico; the result of some 1.5 hours of exposure time.
