    I hope I am not going over the top by saying that these latest pictures remind me of paintings from the time of Lord Byron and Keats. Great work!

    yes so do we, and we are also the only country in the world to have glow worms in our caves too if i am not mistaken. At a farm we regularly stay at, there are two caves on the property, one with a massive Tomo at its entrance, the other with a shallow stream going into it, flanked by native begonia and renga renga. Here are some pics of our autumn, back in march-april-may.
    and some interesting phenomenon that occured too.

    This is on lake Tekapo in Queenstown

    In the caverns, the glow worms cover about 90 % of the roof and upper walls, at my last guess, over 80 sq. meters of rock. Thats a lot!
