It’s just stunning how these glow worms hypnotize me!
Look at the following pictured of New Zealand’s magical glow-worm caves. Mind-blowing!
This pictures are part of Luminosity project, a long-exposure photography essay by Auckland photographer Joseph Michael.
These eerie photos were shot in 30 million year old rock limestone formations in some caves on the north island of New Zealand.
Some of which resemble outer-space scenery.
Others some peaceful landscapes with the glowing lights shimmering in the water like stars in the Ocean.
Being inside the caves must be a fantastic experience. These glow worms are one of Nature’s miracles.
The luminous glow worms, called Arachnocampa luminosa, are unique to New Zealand.
They light up in order to catch prey and attract mates.
Glowing, sticky lines of mucous and silk, sometimes as long as 50cm. Prays are caught on it before being fed to larvae.
