Slightly batty

That was nice. I'd just wandered into the garden for the unsual nightly circuit to see what, if anything, is crawling over the path and a couple of grey-headed flying foxes flapped across the sky about 6 m above my head.

I grabbed the binoculars and watched the bats for a while. Now my hands are covered in mosquito bites. But it was worth it.

Of course, I had to look at the picture.

That bat's grip on the cave wall looks precarious. And I'm not at all surprised.
