A Nighttime Guest In The Bedroom
Well, it's summer up here in the mountains, and I usually open up the upstairs bedroom windows when it gets this hot. (No one up here has air conditioning). Some of my windows have screens. Some don't.
So, I'm lying in my bed surfing the internet and watching TV when I notice something flying around the bedroom and I know what it is immediately, because this isn't the first time it's happened. There's a bat in my bedroom. Flying around in circles.
So, I rush downstairs and get dressed up like I'm going to be stringing barbed wire in the dark and I go into the bedroom with Jennifer's newest butterfly net. I managed to capture him on about the third try. Surprisingly, he doesn't really fly all that fast. More like a butterfly than a bird.
Right now, I've got him in some tupperwear. I'll post some photos when I figure out how to shoot him without getting bitten.
