The best subject for amazing photography is nature, it's just nothing more surprising and whimsical out there. If above the earth, nature is bewitching with breathtaking peaks, magic forests, dynamic waterfalls and amazing animal scenes, just to mention a few, go underground and expect to fall in love with out-of-this-world views. The Waitomo New Zealand glow worm caves are one of the amazing places too see in a lifetime!

The Waitomo New Zealand caves are the home of a glow-worm species called the Arachnocampa luminosa. They start their life as larvae in  transparent tube nests in the ceiling, out of where they start secreting threads of silk that can actually reach up to 50 cm long to catch prey. The bioluminescence is the result of a chemical reaction produced by worms while taking in food and oxygen.
