Big Brown Bat

Here’s what a Big Brown Bat looks like when he’s minding his own business and getting some shut-eye.

And here’s what he looks like when a pesky human tries to shoo him away with a broom.


After seeing his toothy grimace, we decided it was just fine for him to stay right where he was.

Luckily, this morning he was gone. Whew.

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    Oh my gosh! Wow! What a creepy looking creature. I guess I would leave him alone too. Plus if he eats up mosquitoes I’m all for that!

    I like bats. I think they’re totally misunderstood. Besides, like Peggy said, he’s worth his weight in mosquito control!!

      Yes, but he needs to work on his interpersonal skills. A simple ” Leave me alone” would have been better than all that teeth baring. 🙂
