    Tsuneaki Hiramatsu uses low shutter speeds to capture fireflies around Maniwa and Okayama Prefecture in Japan

  • Naazi Ziyad

    This is a long exposure photo of fireflies in Okayama prefecture, Japan. Fireflies or Lampyridae are a family of insects within the order Coleoptera, aka; the Beetle family. Firlies exist on every continent in the world, except Antarctica, with about 2,000 species globally. With the exception of species that are active during the day, fireflies are bioluminescent organisms, which means that they produce their own light. -Jean Photo courtesy of:Tsuneaki Hiramatsu

    Photograph: Tsuneaki Hiramatsu, Slow Shutter Fireflies. During a quiet night in rural Japan, photographer Tsuneaki Hiramatsu discovered a field and a forest aglow in a strange green light. Upon closer inspection, Hiramatsu saw thousands of fireflies illuminating the brush and the trees beyond.

Fireflies. Long exposure. Not usually something I'd categorize as 'hunting and outdoors' but still really cool. Who doesn't love being in the woods while the fireflies are around?

I want to teach my children the magic of the outdoors

"Here come real stars to fill the upper skies, And here on earth come emulating flies, That though they never equal stars in size, (And they were never really stars at heart) Achieve at times a very star-like start. Only, of course, they can't sustain the part.” ― Robert Frost, The Poetry of Robert Frost
