Early evening visitor

This little guy nearly dived bombed into my pond last night while I was out in the yard with my dogs. Naturally I had to play with it. I took him in the house to make sure he was all intact and nothing was wrong with him but I think it's just the unseasonable cool temps that has him a bit clumbsy. I placed him in a tree and he was still there this morning. Ain't he cute though? lol

First set of pics was from last night...

These are from this morning. The flash made the one look like a night pic...
Just look at that face. Wish I'd have been able to get a toothy grin shot while he was screaching at me last night. lol

How cute, a little fuzzball! Gimme!! Can you just pick one from a tree for me (forbidden fruit? ) and send it? I'm sure the shipping agency wouldn't mind

Nice shots! I have a few of them living in the corner of my house. They live up in the siding. Great bug catchers!

It's just that the last time my husband played with a bat (we had a few in the house while doing construction-apparently you need that drywall for certain things)....we ended up at the ER for the first of his series of rabies shots.

We could have caught the bat to see if it had rabies, but we didn't think it should have to pay the ultimate price to let Grant avoid a few dozen injections. So we watched it climb up the wall and exit through the hole it came in through.

Awwwww...how cute he is! Great pictures, too! We also had bats up in a carport attic once before we added an addition to our house! Here in NC you have to love those great little mosquito catchers!
