natgeoyourshot Intergalactic Termites | Photograph by Tatiana Clauzet | "This photo was taken in the Brasilian Cerrado of the amazing bioluminescent termite mounds glowing in the dark. The phenomenon is the result of firefly larvae nesting in the holes to attract the winged termites coming out of the nest. I played with the zoom and focus to create this intergalactic effect which resembles a landscape on a different planet." #brazil #termites #zoom #termitemound #nightphotography #bioluminescence 12h

plvegburgers View from our room at @villaparguera in La Parguera, Puerto Rico, where we went snorkeling at night in the bioluminescent bay with @paradisescuba. The water lights up when you touch it! It was like Fantasia. #puertorico #laparguera #scuba #scubadiving #snorkeling #bioluminescence #bioluminescent #bioluminescentbay #vacation #travel #ididntknowtherewassuchathing #youneedtotrythis 18h

wildisee Bioluminescence.

As the SA Agulhas chugged through wild waters off the continental shelf, millions of glowing dinoflagellates illuminated its wake. These single-celled organisms emit light when disturbed, which is thought to be an anti-predator response. Basically, if a fish wants to eat you then glow as bright as you can to illuminate your predator, and make it more vulnerable to larger predators, such as squid.

The three researchers standing at the back of the ship were marvelling at their own photos of this phenomenon while I snapped this 30 second exposure. Ten seconds were aimed at the back of the ship, and the other twenty at the night sky. The light squiggles are star trails made by the swaying motion of the ship.
