I feel the same way, BalincaguinConservancy! :-)

Lisa, we're the exact opposite... we get excited when we see something like this. Cameras and flashes are pulled out of our cave pack and the shooting begins, from a safe distance of course! ... and yes, caves are VERY dark, we rely on the light sources we pack in!
