Pat Shingleton: "Glowworms, Whoolyworms and the Seasons"
Tourists flock to the Wiatomo Caves in New Zealand to enjoy one of nature's wonders. Similar to the lightning bug, the domes of the caves are blanketed with glowworms. To add to the attraction the ref
lection of the glowworms, on the surface of the river that skirts through the caves, emit another luminous glow. Spectators are encouraged to be extremely quiet during their tour, the slightest noise
turns off the glow worms and total darkness occurs. A recent column mentioned the final summertime sounds of the locust or cicada. As we ease into September and October our traditional love bugs wil
begin their visitations with possibly an appearance from the ever popular wholly warm. More summertime-fall signs in Sunday's post.
