Sun Life Stadium Swarmed by Thousands of Dragonflies, Miami Game Delayed
The kickoff of the Miami Hurricanes-Kansas State Wildcats game has been delayed 30 minutes due to lightning, but there's a far more baffling display of nature going on at Sun Life Stadium right now. The bowl has been invaded by thousands of dragonflies.
Here's a pic of the swarm from Twitter user @EricEspada, who adds, "If you are afraid of dragonflys do not head to Sun Life Stadium. There are a million of them flying in the stadium."
Several other Twitter users are confirming the infestation.
"Nevin Shapiro is bad enough but when a plague of dragonflies delays your game, Someone is sending a message," writes Cecil Hurt.
