Glowworm!!! - Phengodes
Carderock Park, Carderock, Montgomery County, Maryland, USA

Size: ~6.5 cm
I broke out the DSLR, tripod and cable release for some better shots. This one shows the detail of the glowing organs nicely - they look like they're full of something granular.
Note - two nights after these shots, it's no longer glowing. I haven't been able to find it any millipedes to eat and maybe that's why. I hope to have a chance to take it back to where I found it tomorrow.
