Notes: A young geisha is happily playing at a firefly party, hotarugari, a favorite diversion on a warm summer's night. She has just caught a firefly by knocking it down with her fan and has hurriedly put the fan in her mouth to leave both hands free. She is "delighted", but a little surprised at her success and not quite sure what to do next.
