Mind-Blowing Pictures Of Bioluminescent Shrimp In Okayama, Japan

Vargula Hilgendorfii, also famous as sea fireflies, are a kind of extraordinary, bioluminescent shrimp that exist in the sand of shallow sea water. Measuring in at a mere 3 mm in length, only one of these tiny creatures would show up as a faint and obscured speck of light. Put them together, however, and the tiny specks of light connect to create ghosts in the dark night’s tide.

For this photo album, appropriately named The Weeping Stones, creative duo Jonathon Galione and Trevor Williams of Tdub Photo took to the coast of Okayama, Japan. They gently lured gaggles of the glowing creatures into jars of raw bacon, then delicately freed them onto nearby stones. The small shrimps quickly started to flock back to their house in the sand below, offering the two photographers a chance to capture, for just a moment, this wonderful show of the magnificence of life.
