A word coined by the eminent wildlife photographer Alex Wild to describe the flight pattern of a certain species of firefly (or lightning bug, a beetle from the family Lampyridae), particularly when such flight is captured on a composite stack of photographic images.
This photo shows two species around sunset, one making spots along the ground, and the other doing swoopies higher in the air.
