The bats are busy

The bats have been busy each evening flying over the dam to catch insects. We think they are broad nose bats. These bats are very small, when they have their wings folded in they fit in the palm of you hand. The teeth look really sharp.

It’s hard to get a good look at them as they move so fast. These photos were taken when we cut down a dead tree that was too close to the house to be safe.
