Shooting New Zealand’s Awe-Inspiring Glow-Worms

15.06.2016

Auckland-based photographer Shaun Jeffers recently traveled to the Ruakuri Caves in Waitomo, New Zealand to capture stunning photographs of glow-worms. Jeffers explains a bit more about the worms: “New Zealand glow-worms are the larvae (maggots) of a species of fly called a fungus gnat. Like all insects, glow-worms have an organ similar to kidneys. But glow-worms have a special ability to use this organ to create a glowing light. They usually turn the light on just after dark and shine all night long.

Turn off the lights and enjoy the series below…
