Firefly on mosquito net

As I was about to go to bed in a cottage at Svanir Wilderness Homestay, I noticed this firefly on the outside of my mosquito net. Picking up my Olympus TG5, set always on the microscope mode, I clicked a large number of shots in pitch darkness. This came out best, showing the silhouette on the net weave.
