Bats!

May 22nd, 2005
 

The last couple of nights we’ve noticed bats flying around the house in the late twilight and early evening. At first it appeared to be just one bat, flying circles around the house, but later I saw two of them at once. These two spent about half an hour circling the house, not cruising but fluttering here and there as they went after insects. Sometimes they flew very low and made two passes over the deck at eye level.

I happened to have my camera handy, and thought I’d try to snap a picture or two. I didn’t really expect much success, but out of several dozen attempts, I managed to get a few decent photos.
