|We are anxious to get the hell out of here, dammit!|
The photo you see to the left is my handful of red bats, anxious to join their counterparts in the wild. They wasted no time. I took them outside, and they immediately took flight. They looked amazing! It doesn't surprise me, because they've been flying circles in their flight tent for the last couple of weeks.
|What?! I have to feed myself?!!!!|
Sadly, I didn't get any photos of them flying away, primarily because I lack actual photographic skills. The only reason these photos are in focus are thanks to an expensive, idiot-proof camera. Thank you, Canon Rebel!!
Note: Out of extreme paranoia, I made Jim put away the ducks first. Ducks will try to eat just about anything. If one of this little red beasties hit the ground, it could have been bad.
Note: I am a trained wildlife rehabilitator and I've had the pre-exposure vaccination for rabies. No wild bat should ever be handled barehanded by the general public. If you do find a sick, injured, or orphaned bat, you should immediately call a local wildlife rehabilitator and follow their instructions. Please do not attempt bat rehab without the appropriate training and paperwork. Thanks!
