It looks like a forest floor covered in neon string, but it’s actually a clever photograph of North Carolina’s “Blue Ghost Fireflies.” Photographer Spencer Black decided the best way to capture these special creatures was through a long exposure image. He writes: 

These fireflies are unique because their blink pattern is much longer than the common firefly and they hover about a foot off the ground. Witnessing them by the thousands, floating above the forest floor in complete darkness, is truly an incredible experience.
