Beautiful Images of Fireflies by Tsuneaki Hiramatsu

Do you know that feeling when your brain refuses to accept something is real until you see it with your own two eyes because there is a part of you that believes something as special and magical just can't exist.
It's like the first time you go to Disneyland when you are wee, you hear the stories and see the pictures but your little mind just can't believe that it will be as amazing as it sounds.  Then you arrive there and the magic hits you straight in the face and your mind is whizzing like woah it really is magical.
It's the best feeling
Well, my brain feels that way about Fireflies.
All my life I have just been fascinated by them,
These little magical lights dancing in the sky, how can it be real, it's crazy?
I have always wanted to see them in real life and I just can't wait for the day that I do and I hope that it blows my mind just as much as Disneyland did, and you know what I think it will....

So given the fact that Scotland doesn't currently have any Fireflies (I don't think so anyway?) where are the best places to see some and please do tell me your stories about the first time you saw them, are they are beautiful as I imagine?

These are beautiful photos. Really beautiful..

Can't say I've ever seen fireflies in real life... HOWEVER, I see them all the time in The Sims 2. The children always want to catch them.

I am so sad that we don't have fireflies in utah... I have only seen them once and my goodness they are fascinating. These photos are unreal! I can't stop looking at them. The way you described disneyland is so beautiful. I feel that way everytime I see a sunset. Somehow, it never gets old.

Beautiful post :)

Unfortunately I have never seen fire flies either but these pictures are quite amazing. It made me think of Tinkerbell in Peter Pan. Your Disneyland description was awesome!.
