FYI...today is #batappreciationday
When David and I were doing our Buck Creek drive through on Wednesday night at sunset, I pulled over at the Coyote Run parking area to watch a bat flitting over the parking area. It seemed to stay directly over the road and asphalt.
After watching a few minutes, we figured out that the sky above the road was filled with insects (likely midges). Because the road absorbed the heat, the air over the road was apparently warmer; creating a feast for the bat. A second bat joined, and I did grab a few shots. Not the best pics, but you get the idea.
The first pic is a collage of the best, and the separate original pics are also posted. The last pic is focused on the bugs that the bats were eating.
Disclaimer.....I'm a fan of bats as long as they stay up there where they belong! When I got out of the car to photograph them, I was hoping that they wouldn't come down to visit me! LOL.
