It does not look much using a flash. This is the mighty glow worm which is thriving on the verges of our main access track through the Estate. It is the female which emits this glow to attract a male. The light is a bioluminescence and is caused when a molecule called luciferin is oxydised to produce oxyluciferin, with the enzyme luciferase acting as a catalyst in the reaction e.g. it glows!
At my last count we had 38 beacons lighting up the grass! An incredible sight.
The green splodge above provides you with a rough idea of what this amazing creature looks like at night time. Get out and explore your local areas of rough grass for this wondrous light display.
