Hidden in the caves of Queensland's National Parks hide thousands of nature’s most unusual if not beautiful creatures; the glow worm.  The glow worm's evolved with a spectacular ability to produce strings of glowing pearls ultimately used as a creative way to attract prey.

As I walked into the cave it felt like I was standing in the Milky Way. Looking closer, the stars began to wiggle and grow. In reality, thousands of glow worms were going about their daily routine using their light to produce bait for their food. As a bonus, they happened to be creating an enchanting and organic display as well.

 Delightful and strange, it certainly is a sight you must see to believe.
