Fireflies, the flower patch, and circumpolar star trails

A circumpolar star trail was imaged above a field of wildflowers in Lancaster, PA. The firefly activity this evening was amazing! I especially like the loop made by the firefly near the center of the image. The photo was made of 130 twenty second exposures taken with a Canon T6s and a Canon 8-15 mm f/4L lens. (ISO 400, 9mm, f/4.0) The images were stacked using StarStaX.
