On hu­mid nights the ter­mite mounds in Emas Na­tional Park sparkle with eerie green lights. Th­ese are bi­o­lu­mi­nes­cent lures flashed by click-bee­tle lar­vae to at­tract prey. I used a long ex­po­sure, and a flash­light to il­lu­mi­nate the mound. Nikon D800, Nikon AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR, 1/500 sec, f/6.3, ISO200
