A Sight To Behold!
This beautiful photo looks like a painting, but it is a magical display of nature. These fireflies in Osaka, Japan, are probably the best-known example of bioluminescence. Fireflies appear to light up for a variety of reasons. Larvae use their glows as a warning to communicate that they are not going to taste good to a curious predator. As adults, many fireflies have flash patterns unique to their species and use them to identify other members of their species.
One lit-up firefly alone is amazing, but an entire forest of glowing fireflies is a sight to behold!
