just hangin' out

just hangin' out

The hubster was trimming a few trees in our backyard recently and saw his little fellow taking an afternoon nap. I got up on the ladder Hubs was using to get this shot, but it was hard to get a good angle on him without moving a branch and potentially disturbing him.

Due to our lack of rain, I haven't come across one mosquito all summer! Plenty of cicadas though. Maybe that's what our little bat is eating. He doesn't look under-nourished. It could be he's supplementing with the "meals on wings" program. *snort*

He must have been in a deep sleep not to wake up! I see them at night around here, but have never found where they nap during the day.

Have you ever touched one? I really mean touch, without gloves. Their fur is something else and they are very soft. We used to have them in the attic, at the house, when I was a kid. Sometimes one would miss their entrance, and somehow get in the house. Dad would throw a cloth on it, and pick it up to set free outside. And I was always given the chance to touch it a little, under dad's watchful eyes.

Love that comment 'meals on wheels'! Great capture of the little guy!

Whoa! I have a bat in my back hallway off the kitchen. Actually, he was on the floor, saw me coming, and took off down the hall. I have yet to find him but, then again, I'm not really looking. I'm sort of creeped out (I know I shouldn't be!!) but this little guy is cute!

Oh, so cute! Of course, if he woke up while I was photographing him, I'd be the first to run off yelping in terror. But cute from a distance.
