Blue river bioluminescent shrimp in Japan flowing over rocks in the ocean

These amazing photographs were shot off the coast of Okayama (Japan) creative Duo of photographers Trevor Williams and Jonathan Galione. This kind of landscape gives luminous shrimp living in the waters of the area.

Most often these creatures are called sea fireflies, but in fact, this species of shrimp living in the sand in shallow water. By themselves, the prawns are very small — only about 3 mm, and separately, do not emit a strong glow. But gathered in large groups, they create in the coastal water glowing fancy patterns, which cannot fail to attract the eye.

To shoot this series of photographs, photographers had to go to tricks: they lured the shrimp with raw bacon in a big pot and then released them on the rocks. Because it was in close proximity to the water, none of the shrimp after the shooting was not injured and came back in his element.
