Japan’s Magical Firefly Show (12 Photos)

Each year when summer comes along, we all look forward to different things. Some of us head to the beach, others to the mountains for camping. Some look forward to the epicurean delights like watermelon and ice cones.

But for a select group of photographers in Japan, Summer signals the arrival of fireflies. And for very short periods ā€“ typically May and June, from around 7 to 9pm ā€“ these photographers set off to secret locations all around Japan, hoping to capture the magical insects that light up the night.
