A volcano spewing ash, magical forest fireflies, and a monkey who feels just like we all do about winter weather. These are just a few of the remarkable photos from the Smithsonian’s annual photo contest.
Tennessee Fireflies: Realtime Stock Footage - YouTube - This is one of the rarest phenomena on earth. Many people from all over the world travel every year during summer to The Smoky Mountain National Park in Tennessee to witness thousands of Synchronous Fireflies.
In the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a swarm of synchronous fireflies appears in the area of the park near Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Each night for about a week, their rare talent is on display: they blink in unison, creating perfectly choreographed patterns of light.
