Bats in the Sky tonight
Had to get away from the house tonight, it was way too hot, what with the high humidity, so I rode my bike to the park and took a walk.
It turned out to be a good idea, because the bats were out tonight, swooping hither and thither overhead, hunting insects I expect. We seem to have a healthy bat population here, and I appreciate the service they provide hunting pests. Also they are really cute.
I walked around the park and as the sun went down I spied lightning striking in the far distance.
I went on the swings for a bit, and then when I went to unlock my bike, the biggest spider in Oregon skittered up and chilled just underneath my bicycle.
A good night for ghoulies, ghosties, and long-leggedy beasties.
Watch this space, I've got new posts coming up soon,
