Sometimes, at night, the fallen leaves begin to glow. Then they slowly organize themselves into shapes that you just might recognize. Or maybe not.


Miya Ando is an artist who released 1,000 bioluminescent leaves into a pond in Puerto Rico. She had coated the leaves in a non-toxic, phosphorescent resin. After a day in the sun, the resin on the outside of the leaves would release photons all night, emitting this beautiful, blue glow. You can see more of Ando's work on her website.
