The bat, a mammal for God’s sake, belongs to the order Chiroptera, meaning Hand-wing. Despite the cultural negativity towards these guys and gals, they eat insects.I spent a half-dozen minutes on my local urban street capturing their insect-sorties the other night. Not a lot of resolution here in the images. My cell-cam did its best. It was a whole squadron of bats, protecting my street from mosquitos.
A beautiful thing, almost invisible, what these bats do, in the dying sunlight.
