As the day dims the bats come out to feed
well rested from their sleep during the heat
they soar high looking for the nearest fruit
tree to feast while their wings flap swiftly

  1. Awwww thank you for sharing, Kate!! When I lived in Africa, there were lots of bats, and while a lot of people were afraid, I always loved the little creatures…. Such skilled flyers, I really enjoyed watching their evening ballet….

    1. evening ballet is a lovely description, same here .. once I was applying for a bat license to keep two little fellas at home .. but moved from my ideal location before the officials got their act together 😦

        1. no resting places in the city are difficult as beasts or councils move them on. I was on a fourth floor in an ideal area … they would have roosted with me but had the freedom to fly each night 🙂


  2. I saw a bat once when my Gran unrolled a rug from the garage and we found one living inside it. It’s one of my odder memories. I love the image of heat in this though, a great tonic to the snow currently falling around me.

            1. do hope it clears quickly and that you will soon be enjoying the buds and shoots of spring … please wander around my blog as I’ve been posting summer photos to help you northerners feel the warmth!


  3. Beautiful photo and words combo, Kate!
    They are such amazing creatures! Often so misunderstood! Judged unfairly!
    Shouldn’t we all be able to relate to them?
    We get bats in the summer and I love to watch them fly!
    HUGS!!! 🙂
    PS…Makes me think of a funny story when a friend had one get in her cabin and she was petrified and called me to come over and “get it out of here!”! 😀
