TQ8399 : Glow-worm

taken 12 years ago, near to Stow Maries, Essex, Great Britain

This is the glow from a glow worm TQ8399 : Lampyris noctiluca unfortunately the beetle was hiding behind the foliage. I suspect I visited TQ8399 : Stow Maries Halt Nature Reserve too late in the season as I only saw two and only one was in a photographable position. The flash was enough to cause the Glow-worm to give up. This photo is one of only two exposures I managed to get. See the 2012 crop at LinkExternal link The technical info is as follows ISO 200, 200mm lens at F8, 5.6 seconds exposure, manually triggered bounce flash
