Comments - Lovely scene of a favorite summer pastime, catching fireflies. At left, a girl swats at the softly glowing insects with a red fan, while two boys behind her chase after them with a stalk of bamboo and a fan tied to a pole. A woman relaxes on a bench in the center, smiling as she watches the children over her shoulder. Another beauty at right carries a small insect cage, the handle of her fan caught between her teeth, a young girl next to her capturing a firefly against the ground with her fan. A stream meanders through the garden, the softly shaded evening sky framed by willow trees. A charming triptych.
