Hydrangea in summer night

Deep in the forest where no one can enter · · · wrapped in the dark · · · You can hear the cry of insects and birds and whisper of the plant rubbed against the wind ... I feel fear in the darkness of the night. "Himehotaru" living in summer night forest , firefly which is an indigenous species of Japan, fly around the summer forest while repeating a blink of a short time, reminiscent of Christmas illumination. That sight is fantastic enough to forget the awe of the night forest. It is the shine brightness of life of only 10 days in the summer. Hydrangea blooming in the summer forest ... It is a pretty flower that makes me feel the season called summer.
