A new wildlife sighting!

We knew there were bats on the island but we just got to see one close up. Sooz picked up her boots off the deck this afternoon and hiding underneath was a tiny little bat! He seemed a bit slow- moving but not injured (or rabid) so I scooped him up in a plant pot and took him downhill to the woods. He scampered up a bush and immediately hung upside-down. How cute!

We like bats in our family. Grant had a teacher who was crazy about them so he learned more than a usual amount on the subject in school. They also eat lots of mosquitoes, which makes them all right in my book.
