These photos taken by local photographer Joseph Michael capture what is arguably one of the most magical and otherworldly spectacles on earth, New Zealand's glow worm caves. These photos taken on New Zealand's North Island capture caves that are home to tiny bioluminescent lava known as arachnocampa luminosa. The tiny lava give off a light blue glow in order to find a mate, which makes for some truly amazing photos. To learn more about this magical photo series by Michael then visit here.
