I was out in the yard just now with a super bright UV LED flashlight, and discovered that the millipedes that I have around here (and there are a lot of them) are fluorescent!

I saw several dozen of them, at least, as well as some scattered bits and parts that look like they may have been left over from ones that were eaten, shed their shell, or died.

I also include one photo under standard light from my phone's flash. It's a bit tricky doing that in the dark, so the focus is not the best, but the Millipede is crossing the brown leaf in the top center of the photo.

The light is extremely bright, which makes it easy to spot them all over the yard, but trying to get up close enough to shoot video for any duration is difficult. They don't seem to like the bright light, and will duck and hide relatively quickly, within a few seconds.

Here's a sort of funny picture.

I heard the leaves crunching just outside my bedroom window, and it was really close, so I went over and looked out, and saw this doe peeing. (At least, I think she's peeing. I have seen them poop, and they do that standing up and even while walking, but I've never seen them squat like this.)

There was another one standing about 10 feet away, to the upper left of this photo. I suspect it was an offspring, though by this time in the season, the fawns have lost their spots and grown, so it is hard to differentiate them from their parents.
