Sandflies and Videotapes
Summer is finally here, which means heavy showers and the arrival of a thick cloud of sandflies to Snake Cay. The last two days have been particularly bad. It is easy to see hundreds of sandflies swarming over Dave's head while he is trying to videotape lizards. The land crabs (Cardisoma guanhumi) are also getting excited with the rain, and beginning their migration. Today we found a nice size male, picture above, on Cay 5.
