Jeepers Creepers Batman: It's A Boy! by 

Baby Bat Born Last Evening

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina US

When a dead tree was chopped down this morning, this little guy, his sibling and his mother were left homeless. His mother crawled off into the forest with an injured wing, so he was left abandoned.

I treasure connections with those who are touched in some way by nature’s beauty. During those magic moments, we share a special awe in nature’s presence. We are compelled to see and share. Connections make us who we are and relationships within nature give our lives meaning.

    Oh my goodness what do you do for them??

  • Unfortunately, not much anyone can do. We left him well hidden in a tree near where his mother had just been. Hopefully, she is ok and can locate her little ones. Nature is cruel at times.

    wow! Joe, this is amazing! you are so lucky. on your texto yesterday you told me you were catching a bat. I didn’t know it was going to be so nice and close! great shot ;)

  • Yes, you were right there in text world anyway. This little fellow was hard to shoot, he was wiggling, very dark against dark back ground and trying to move away. Finally he hung upside down for a time. Must be his comfort position.

    Such a shame that it wasn’t checked that something was living in the tree before it’s home was destroyed. Perhaps with the help of wild life authorities it could have been relocated. None the less an amazing image.

  • Thank you Barbara! I came by after the tree had been felled. It was at least 80 feet tall and no one could have seen the well hidden bats in a cavity well up into the heights. This was a sad event, I hope the mother reclaimed her young and they are well in a nearby tree.
