Got a trio of larvae last month, and plan to get a couple more once my traeger pellets have finished fermenting. :) Can't wait until these beauties mature! :D

The video came out nice, it really shows how bright they are. Not an easy thing to photograph.

Thanks! :D It definitely isn't easy to get a good photograph of the glow, at least not if you want a clear picture, which is why I've taken a couple videos of the adults glowing to show that aspect of them off a bit. :)

You have to upload your photos to a different website that will let you upload large pictures, and then copy the URL from there and use that to put the photos on here.

Flickr, Blogger, and maybe Imgur would be good sites for hosting larger images, I use Blogger myself.
