    Glowing Blue Waves Explained ➤ http://goo.gl/w7Lum National Geographic - via Pinterest Ashley Lacher - Pinpricks of light on the shore seem to mirror stars above in an undated picture taken on Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives. The biological light, or bioluminescence, in the waves is the product of marine microbes called phytoplankton - and now scientists think they know how some of these life-forms create their brilliant blue glow.

    This picture was taken on Vaadhoo Island in the Maldives. The biological light, or bioluminescence, in the waves is the product of tiny marine life-forms called phytoplankton—and now scientists think they know how some of these sea creatures create their brilliant blue glow.

    From National Geographic: "The biological light, or bioluminescence, in the waves is the product of tiny marine life-forms called phytoplankton" - We swam with them in Puerto Rico! How amazing!!

    One of the most beautiful examples of evolutionary adaptation can be seen in this picture taken in the Maldives. The biological light, or bioluminescence, in the waves is the product of marine microbes called phytoplankton. Phytoplankton have adapted to the darkness of the ocean by utilising chemicals known as luciferins to ‘glow’.

    The Maldives (via National Geographic): This bioluminescence is simply blue light from phytoplankton, microscopic sea creatures that secrete illuminating chemicals as a survival mechanism.
