Fine art illustration of a Pennsylvania Firefly (Photuris pennsylvanica.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Pennsylvania Firefly was completed on 10.10.2012. Fireflies were a huge part of my childhood, and I recall traveling to areas near the Minnesota/Iowa border and trapping them in jars – and releasing them. I considered trying to draw one actually lighting up, but it didn’t really seem to fit in with the rest of the images in the library. But these beetles are lovely without showing the glow they are famous for I believe. The drawing is based on a photo by Dann Thombs.
