Cute, I got a shot of a little furry last summer, but alas it was with the Fuji.

Ah,a friend of mine and one of the more common breeds found and located in the southeastern US.This one appearsto be Pipistrellus subflavus or more commonly known as the Eastern Pipistrelle Bat or in the caving community"Eastern Pip"or just "Pip".

Nice find Dawg,this one eats insects and quite a few of them and good to have around.They love those humming bird sizeskeeters we have down south here!:-)

Can't decide if he's a cute little fellow or just so ugly he's cute. Good pictures in any case.

Thanks for taking a look Ira. My daughter thought he was so cute and she will not allow anyone to bother it. They are a great species to have around to keep the insects in line! This one is directly in line with her front door and steps. You have to pass under him to get in the front door. About the size of your thumb.

And they do make a squeaking noise so we now know where the term Pip Squeak comes from!
