After the first rain following the dry season, in cool and humid nights, Larvae of the click-beetle Pyrearinus termitilluminans lodged in small tunnels in termite mounds come out to the edge of the tunnels, produce and emit light (bioluminescence) to atract insects and prey them. This phenomenon occurs in central Brazil, specially in the area of Emas National Park. Photograph taken about 30 minutes after sunset, with an exposure of 30 seconds and f/8 aperture, with ISO 400.
