13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
I took this photo of fireflies (lightning bugs) in almost complete darkness using the latest low-light camera technology. I was completely surrounded by the fireflies and witnessed one of the most amazing and magical natural phenomena: fireflies that synchronize.
Alteration note: I took several long exposures over several minutes and merged them together to preserve detail and clarity.
