NOTE! For optimal viewing, watch this video at night, with all lights turned off, in full screen mode and with sound turned on.

I wanted to document not only their beauty and magical glow, but also behavior in their natural environment. I have chosen not to do any digital manipulation to the video itself, so the footage came strait from the camera. This is not a time-lapse photography, but a real time footage of fireflies! Sit back relax and enjoy the summer magic.
