Orfelia fultoni - aka dismalites - aka known to cavers as the "Neversink glowworms". These little bugger are bright but tiny. This image is a 31min exposure composited with an overlay of the pit being lit up with flashbulbs. This photo has been in my head for three years and I am happy that it finally came to fruition....

Orfelia fultoni, Neversink Pit, Crow Mountain, Neversink Cave Preserve, Jackson County, Alabama

enjoy:
