Default Company for the picnic.

Opened the deck cafe umbrellas readying for todays get together and found this guy tucked away in the folds, He was quite cozy in there and not happy with me turning on the lights.
He and his buddy's keep the mosquito population down, well they need to work a little harder.
Only about half the size of my thumb and nowhere near that weight.

Yes, just a liitle guy. I suppose if all I ate all nght were mossies that's as big as I'd get. On the other hand we cooked a top of tender juicy spare ribs today....and they all went. That's why I weight 220..

Hey Ken: that's definitely a different animal than we usually see. When you say he's that small, is he a baby, or is he a full grown adult?

Sounds like the ribs must have been a hit, we didn't know that you were also a gourmet chief!!

What lens were you using?

Sorry that was the 70-300. Might have been a bit much but I didn't really have time. The DOF was a little shallow.Hard shot really. Brown on brown and no real contrast on the little guy. had to lighten it a lot to get any definition.

He's a full grown Brown . From google: Most brown bats weigh less than 1 ounce, but they can range from only 7 grams to 18 or 20 grams. Gives you some idea.

They're fun to watch from the deck just before dark after flying insects. Just to confuse them I'll toss little bits of gravel in front of them, just to see how quick they are making the turn. They're quick.

Oh, guess what I'm having for dinner tonight. No...not bat. Left over ribs.....Mmmmm!
