Fireflies are pretty captivating when watched with the naked eye, but in this time-lapse video, they become even more stunning. Photographer Vincent Brady created this project after becoming fascinated with fireflies as an artistic subject a few years back.

The video description explains a bit more:

Shot over the Summer of 2013 primarily in Lake of the Ozarks, MO as well as Grand Ledge, MI. The majority of the Summer I dedicated to photographing fireflies, because, well, they are just awesome. Nothing quite ends a hot and humid Summer day like the blessing of the majestic fireflies. Lake of the Ozarks is a fantastic home to the creatures. Being out on the boat and watching as they light the treeline with their all night disco party is just amazing.

The music you hear in the video was composed by Brady’s friend, Brandon McCoy, specifically for this project. It definitely contributes to the whole feeling-at-one-with-nature thing.
