You are right about finding one in the daytime. We have the Mexican freetail bats. Their faces look like little foxes but they do have a reputation for carrying rabies. I was swimming one night and one fell into the pool with me. Since the dogs were in the yard I drowned it with a net, as a normal healthy bat doesn't fall into water. It was too dangerous to chance exposing the dogs. In the winter the bats migrate to Mexico and spend summers in many of the limestone caves around us.

Yes Zoya all creatures have good points. I once had a bat that returned to my old house only to enjoy the master bedroom. So I got the X to get a broom and flush it out the window and I closed him in the room til the deed was done. LOL

Not really sure what his deal was. Not likely to find one in broad daylight like that. I just had to get the photo and prayed he would not awake to catch me Guess man thought he was too much competition for him ROFL

Agreed, that they aren't the prettiest of critters, but so welcomed, for the job they do. We have small ones, here in FL, and I love watching them catch the skeeters in the evening. Great close up.

The responses to this image is great. Now we have a lot of dragon flies around here but I think the bats do a better job. I always find them swarming around here come dusk to get the mosquitos

great image of the bat, Tam. Think it's the best one I've seen. We did have them around here at one time, - some people had "bat houses" on the side of their house, but haven't seen any bats lately, - think the people removed the bat houses, maybe someone complained. who knows.

OMG Tammi hes is Very Ugly but what a great closeup of it. They[Fish and Game Dept.] release Dragonflies here in Maine to help keep the mosquitoes away. Carol

Wow!!! What a great picture! They have an ancient look, don't they? Or is it my imagination?
