Enchanting Firefly Forest in Japan


On hot, hazy summer nights, fireflies take centre stage as they fly through the night air, punctuating the darkness with flecks of yellow light.

But Japanese photographer Tsuneaki Hiramatsu captured their beauty in a whole new light, using time-lapse photography.

The result - lush images that show patterns of light that looks more like celestial figures than arthropods.
