Tsuneaki Hiramatsu's photos of fireflies and their light trails are nothing short of magical. The photos, taken in various places around Maniwa and Okayama Prefecture in Japan, are a series of slow shutter and multi-exposure composites that show fireflies as they mate after thunderstorms during the June to July rainy season. Light painting in photography is nothing new, in fact, it's a trend we post on often, but the fact that these "light paintings" are all natural make them all that much more beautiful. Neither the lights nor the strokes are man-made, rather, both are a part of nature and Hiramatsu was only there to capture these magnificent scenes.
