I spent a very lovely evening with a friend at the riverbank - with banana bread (fresh from the oven, still warm, and incredibly delicious - bananas never tasted THIS good!) and a bottle of red wine - and by the time it was getting dark the birds began to disappear and the bats came out... So many! And larger than the tiny ones I have usually seen. They inspired me to make a bat star:
Unfortunately, my camera is in no way fit to take pictures of bats in flight, so I used one from the internet and just layered five of them on top of each other.
