Be like a fireflies, enchanted dark forest with their lights..

Fireflies produce a "cold light", with no infrared or ultraviolet frequencies. This chemically-produced light from the lower abdomen may be yellow, green, or pale red

Using a slow shutter speed on the camera makes the fireflies appear to leave ghostly phosphorescent trails between the trees

No, these aren't deleted scenes from James Cameron's sci-fi epic Avatar - these spectacular images show mesmerising phosphorescent patterns swirling through a forest that are all produced by earthbound insects.

Fireflies are winged beetles and give off a green luminous glow from chemicals in their lower abdomen in a process called bioluminescence.

As babies - the larval stage of the insects' lives - they use their glow to warn off predators but as adults they use the same phenomenon to attract mates.

As though no one is watching you.


as though you have never been hurt before


as though no one can hear you


as though heaven is here on earth
