Found this little guy when I opened the porch umbrella…so cute! And I was just thinking the other night that I hadn’t seen any bats around here…his body was about 2.5" long

    What a wonderful capture!!! Here in Germany they are under protection! We even have specialists that get them well again before letting them out, after an injury!!!

  • thanks! yeh, they are having a problem in places in the US, they get a white fungus in their nose…this guy looked and acted healthy!

    This is just dandy ~ a Little Brown Bat, I assume. This place is chock full of Little Browns; protected, encouraged… the trademark of Chautauqua. And no mosquitoes there, at all! ~ Sheila

  • thanks Sheila! he was a cutie, I think I have seen him around since then…that’s a great shot of a beautiful place…
