Artist's Description

Looking down from the balcony of the tower at Rosie and one of the gang, waiting for breakfast.

And a bat on the floor by my chair when I came up to the tower this morning. All sprawled out and flat, looking dead. I couldn’t face picking it up until I’d had a cup of coffee. Sat down at my chair, feeling bad thinking I’d scared it to death by shining a torch on it earlier in the night when it woke me with its flying over my head. And while I’m at the computer a second bat is circling overhead and I’m thinking perhaps I’m not the killer, perhaps it was a fight between bats. Glance at the floor behind my chair and there is no dead bat there. I’ve no idea what it was doing, sprawled on the floor like that. I didn’t see it go out through the open door. I suspect it’s sleeping above my head in the gaps where the log joists of the tower come together.

If I’d known it was alive, I would have taken its photo. Missed opportunity, just because I needed coffee before touching it! Would have been interesting, if I had touched it. Debatable which one would have jumped higher :)
