I am fortunate enough to work at some genuinely beautiful sites, and I get to see a lot of unusual things. Being bummed out by the general state of the world, I was able to find some solace around sundown.
I've always been enchanted by bats, ever since I was a small child. Well, as the sky was darkening, I noticed that an unusually large number of bats were flitting around the property. They weren't shy at all, often swooping close enough to me that I could hear the "whirring" of their wings. It was a really magical moment, especially considering all the mosquitoes they were devouring.
While I was enjoying the aerial dance of these cute chiropteran cutups, my friend and co-worker Fred was being driven... uh... batty by these unholy bird/mouse hybrids. Hilariously, I caught him jumping a couple of times, in an ambitious effort to catch one of these aeronauts. Poor thing, he was so out of his element.
What were you expecting? Huh?
