Long-exposure photographs of fireflies create magical forest scenes

Illustration for article titled Long-exposure photographs of fireflies create magical forest scenes

Photographer Yume Cyan has been recasting the fireflies around Nagoya City, Japan, as fairy lights in a series of long-exposure photos. The momentary flashing of each bug becomes part of a bioluminescent trail it winds through the trees.

Looks more like multiple exposure than long exposure. With long there would be streaks of light instead of dots.
