Four-thirty in the afternoon.
The Neighborhood Rooser is crowing.

Acrobats of Dusk and Dawn

I wandered outside to sit and watch the Moon at 6:30 am. Birds are sleeping.

Suddenly a flash like when you catch a glimpse of your eyelashes under certain light caught my attention.

What was that? There, quite near my face.

This is breathtaking,,,it's a bat.

The yard is full of tall pine trees and the bats twirl and spin around and around. Their wings make no noise. They are catching insects.

I enjoy stealing out to the deck at dusk to watch their acrobatics.
Here they are at dawn.
