I used every trick I have up my sleeve to pull this off. Image stacking, 360 degree startrail panoramas, and even a macro love scene! Hold on to your seats these fireflies fly by pretty quick!

Myself and some friends came across hundreds of these bioluminescent jellies on Rossnowlagh beach, Co Donegal at low tide last night [Saturday]. When disturbed, they glow bright blue. From what I can gather, they’re rarely seen here and seemed to be gathered almost entirely in front of a hotel – the only lit up part of the beach. Maybe some of your readers can help shed some light (sorry…) as to why?
