Bugs Under a Street Light: Beautiful

Chris Higgins

By combining a series of still-camera shots into a video, photographer Charlie McCarthy has made something amazing. The shots are long-exposures showing bugs buzzing around a street light, making abstract doodles in the air -- revealing the flight path of the insects as they circle and dance around the light. The video is short (43 seconds), and just beautiful.
