During a quiet night in rural Japan, photographer Tsuneaki Hiramatsu discovered a field and a forest aglow in a strange green light.  Upon closer inspection, Hiramatsu saw thousands of fireflies illuminating the brush and the trees beyond.  Fortunately for us, Hiramatsu had his Nikon handy, and captured a series of stills that expose the fireflies in all their natural glory.  This collection of slow shutter and multi-exposure composites shows the tiny Lampyridae (also known as lighting bug or firefly) as it dances throughout the countryside.  Truly magical work, Mr. Hiramatsu.
