Photographer Vincent Brady used time-lapse photography to reveal the beautiful luminous festivities of fireflies streaking through the darkness of the night.

Japanese photographer Yume Cyan has been taking these surreal shots of fireflies in the forests of Nagoya City, Japan, keeping the shutter of his Canon 5D Mark III open for about 30 seconds. The f/2.8 aperture made the closer fireflies blur into glowing circles.
Two weeks ago, during the inaugural Tokyo Hotaru festival, 100,000 little balls with LEDs were released in the Sumida River.
