Here's a close up of the very tiny trogolobitic isopod living in our cave! Can you tell which side is its head?

Repost from @b_mackinnon_photography , this area is deep on the wild side of Rats Nest Cave ! . After many tries I finally got a picture of fluorescing calcite that I am happy with! I was able to use a filter to block all of the visible light coming out of the UV led and this was the final result! My goal was to get a picture that required minimal editing and I am really excited with how it turned out! I have a few more from the trip that I'll be posting soon with different formations and compositions! Enjoy! #nature #cave #caving #fluorescent #longexposure #lightpainting #naturephotography #beautiful #canoncanada #canon #canonphotography #canon5dmkii #canon_photos #geology #canmore #explorealberta #ratsnestcave #canmore #travelalberta #yeg #calgary #yyc #explorebanff #explorealberta #visitcanmore #banff #alberta #explorecanada #geology #adventure #explore #water #uvphotography

We have little creatures called Isopods in our cave! They are troglobitic, meaning that they have evolved to live underground. They have lost all of their pigment and both of their eyes and they are only about the size of a grain of rice!

This was a first for me today! Seeing a formation called a helictite that is now turning into a soda straw! I wonder how much longer it will be able to hold the weight? Its believed that helictites can form and grow through microfractures in the calcite that draw the water up them through capillary action. So stoked to find this on the wild side of the cave! .

Getting geared up at the cave! This is one of the most exciting parts of the day as the cave is so close you can practically smell it... or chewy? In order to cave safely we must get our harnesses, helmets, and things with a funny name called cows-tails on right! #cave #caving #canmore #canmorecavetours #ratsnestcave #edmonton #yeg #calgary #yyc #travelalberta #explorebanff #explorealberta #visitcanmore #banff #rockymountains #alberta #explorecanada #canada #mybanff #canadianrockies #adventure #explore #getoutside #goexplore

Sometimes the smaller spots are a lot bigger than you think! Often when looking at a squeeze your first thought is "no way am I fitting through there!" However, you may surprise yourself so give it a shot! . #cave #caving #canmore #canmorecavetours #ratsnestcave #edmonton #yeg #calgary #yyc #travelalberta #explorebanff #explorealberta #visitcanmore #banff #rockymountains #alberta #explorecanada #canada #mybanff #canadianrockies #adventure #explore #getoutside #goexplore

Sometimes finding all the different passageways can be quite challenging, especially if it's your first time in the cave. Trying to find where you are on the map is a whole other story! #cave #caving #canmore #canmorecavetours #ratsnestcave #edmonton #yeg #calgary #yyc #travelalberta #explorebanff #explorealberta #visitcanmore #banff #rockymountains #alberta #explorecanada #canada #mybanff #canadianrockies #adventure #explore #getoutside #goexplore

A shot of the grotto under a UV flashlight. This was the first try at getting the glowing calcite with this particular flashlight. It is a special flashlight that also has a filter which blocks out all visible light. Therefore, pretty much everything illuminated in the shot is that way because it is glowing and not due to being lit up with a blue greenish light! The water seems to be glowing as well... maybe because its saturated with calcite? The same stuff the formations are made of? .

These drops happen in the blink of an eye. You would never expect there to be so much beauty in them until captured by a flash of light. Every person on a tour would have undoubtedly heard or seen these drops of water in the grotto not knowing how beautiful they could be under the right circumstances! .
