Can you see what that is and how tiny he is? It's a little brown bat, hanging upside down in the middle of the city! No kidding, his body isn't more than 2 inches long! And he was sound asleep. I got my phone about six inches from him to take this picture and he never stirred, although when I came out of the store a few minutes later, he had shifted his position a bit. His body is covered in brown fur - he looks just like a little mouse with wings. Can you believe I'm thinking a bat is cute?
I looked for other bats hanging around, but couldn't find any. So what happened to this one? Why is he alone in the city? Do you suppose he'll find his buddies tonight when they all come out to eat bugs? Why am I still thinking about a bat? Maybe becoming a grandmother has made me feel all maternal again. But toward a bat?
Be thankful ~
