This looks odd

    Does that look like blood coming off of that machete to anyone else?

    Heheh! That's not actually a machete - it's a grass-cutter. It's what the field assistants and researchers use to chop down the grass and other plants that grow up around the cameras, to try and spare us from having to wade through quite so many pictures of nothing but waving grasses triggered by the movement of the grass as it heats up in the sun. So the only stuff coming off that blade is chopped up vegetation. 😃
