Summer months in Japan welcome an influx of fireflies and this firefly photography beautifully captures the insects effect on their surroundings.

The photographs were taken using long exposure techniques and by taking multiple images of the same frame. While the resulting photography is perhaps somewhat misleading in giving the viewer the impression that there are more of the insects than there really are, the effect remains the same. The firefly photography manages to capture the luminescent quality that fireflies have and shows their effect on the surrounding nature in a way that makes the photos look as though they were digitally rendered.

These stunning images show the power and mystical quality that fireflies are able to embody in their natural settings.
