These Photos Of Fireflies In Japan Are Beyond Magical. Is Photo #7 Even Real???

Fireflies, with their sparkling tiny bodies, make you want to keep them in a jar so you can take them with you anywhere you go.

You’re going to put the said thing on a table beside your bed and stare at such magical display each night before you sleep.

But, would you still cage these stunning creatures once you’ve seen photos of fireflies living freely in the forests of Japan?

I tell you, these pictures look oh so surreal you might need extra oxygen (as they’re going to take your precious breath away). But, did you know that it’s extremely difficult to take photos of them? Getting chased by paparazzi isn’t their thing!

They don’t want any other light besides theirs, so you’re never really allowed to use camera flash as they’re going to be extremely mad. What photographers do is use a tripod and do long exposure shots. It’s no easy task, you guys.

That said, kudos to every single photographer involved in a collection of brilliant firefly shots that is below.
