Magnificent Photos of Fireflies

Fireflies, these little creatures typically breed for short periods of time and are difficult to detect when light pollution drowns out their brilliance. It is quite difficult to capture their displays of bio-luminescence since these little bugs are extremely sensitive, reacting to lights and pollution and typically only live about 10 days. Hence, the images that portray their mystical glow are much more special. Luckily, we found some magnificent photos of these glowing bugs and wanted to share with you guys. Take your time and enjoy the beauty of these magical creatures. Last but not least, let’s try our best to protect the environment so our kids will still have chances to see them by themselves.
