Bioluminescence:lighting up the natural world

1 post in this topic

The forest floor is barely visible in the low light conditions when it suddenly bursts into life, becoming a neon green blanket of light.

The source of this eerie light is a bioluminescent fungus, known only by the name given to it by locals: "chimpanzee fire".

Filmmaker Verity White was able to catch this phenomenon on camera for the Congo episode of the BBC/Discovery series Africa using long-exposure time-lapse photography techniques.
