Tsuneaki Hiramatsu - Long exposure/time lapse photographs of fireflies. Whimsical and beautiful.
"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
(More photos at the link) The long-exposure photos near the river were taken near Okayama City in the Hokubo area (Japan), and capture a certain type of firefly called the Genji Botaru.
“The fireflies, twinkling among leaves, / make the stars wonder.” Rabindrinath Tagore
