    Love their little faces. Very good detail that you got on these cute beady eyed flappers. I’ll bet they’re a pain when they over-fly one, scattering fruity feces on everybody. Then they fly off laughing. . .

    We have the tiny bats that eat tiny bugs at dusk and pre-dawn up where I live in the USA. They’re just the size of mice, and I adore them! A couple of them came into my house one evening when I had the door open and the light on, just chasing bugs.

    I was reading, and the light seemed to be dimming and brightening over and over again. I looked up and saw a pair of them, working their little hearts out, clearing the world of mosquitos and gnats.

    Eventually, I shot my hand up and caught one, which smacked into my palm, and put it outdoors. Then I caught its pal the same way. Which is how/when I found out bats can’t take off from the ground, but have to drop or be tossed into the air to resume flight. Should have thought of that, but the cats didn’t get them while I studied on why they hadn’t flown off, so I’m sure their progeny are still happily gumming bugs.

  • Thank you so very much Dayonda lovely story the fruit bats are very niosey and smelly they get around in very large groups I think they are cute but then I dont have to live near them

    I wouldn’t live near them happily, either. I stay out of cities because I don’t like the noise and smell… So in the Wilds of Australia, where there nobody per square mile, there is still noise and stink. Some thing you just can’t get away from, eh? LoL
