Long Exposure Photographs of Fireflies Show Off Their Blinky Brilliance

 

The neon signs of the animal world, fireflies have been impressing us non-luminescent humans for millenia. Though their flashes are just a gaudy advertisement for sex, it is no less beautiful — even more so when you photograph them with a long exposure camera. These photos from Japan capture fireflies as little more than beautiful points of light, while others capture the zigzagging path of the moving insects. It’s great stuff, making the forest look almost magical.
