I thought there had been a previous thread on this topic but I searched and couldn't find it. The word "lightning"comes up quite a bit though and so does bugs, just not "lightning bugs."
Anybody else taking pictures of them? I tried tonight but got out too late and no many were out nor close, but still I had some pretty good results with my S95. I was using ISO2500, F2.0, 5 second exposure, infinity focus and an intervalometer. I caught a few far off and a couple neat trails.
My thought was to just run it on an intervalometer and maybe combine the pics if necessary to get a neat effect. I think a lower ISO and a longer exposure might make for a little better picture, not sure though.
Looks like they like the taller grass, so maybe set up there and leave it for a while, also helps to have a really dark backdrop from what I saw. Any tips on attracting them other than catching a bunch and letting them go?
