That time I was a beautiful Glow Worm fairy

Glow Worms. Have you ever heard of them? Well, they are these cute little organisms that dangle off the roof of caves and glow, of course. It is said that their glow is actually their poo, and that’s probably the extent of my knowledge on glow worms. I was totally into capturing the moments rather than listening to the tour guide’s glow worm explanation.

Thanks to Real Journeys, Kate and I got to check out the Te Anau Glow Worm Caves and have the entire cave to ourselves to capture the glow worms on our cameras. I’m not familiar at all with capturing astro photography or anything to do with darkness and a camera. So I definitely had one heck of a time trying to get their glowy-ness in my photos. I took one decent photo of them, and you’ll find that below. I definitely had much more excitement capturing the entrance of the glow worm cave! Seriously those 2 photos of the entrance made my entire trip! The way the light from outside the cave came inside was just beautiful, I love playing around with shadows.

┬áDefinitely make your way down to the Te Anau Glow Worm Caves, they’re pretty cool. I feel like if you’re in New Zealand, there are a few key things you need to see, and Glow Worms are one of them! Make sure you pack a lunch, I definitely got hungry and had to buy a Cookie Time Cookie, which was not ideal. Anyways, so many road trips have been happening lately I can’t even handle all of my photo content! I hope you enjoyed the Te Anau Glow Worm Cave photos, and stay tuned for many more adventures very soon!
