I Watched Bats At Twilight

For those who love the uncertainty of shadows. 96 People

    Full Moon and Venus Over Mackrell Sky.

    I didn't get a chance to write last night. There were things to ready for the week that seemed to get in the way. Tonight was much the same. My evening class meant that the twilight passed without me. The sunset dived into the east in beautiful warm reds and oranges, merging with...

    It Is One of My Most Favorite Things!

    To be spending so many days exploring land and caves and rivers and lakes, freaked me the hell out deep in that dark cave to see so many hanging when we flashlighted them, trying not to disturb them, and then camped there outside the cave, the morning flight was so glorious and...

    The Bats Are Back!

    We had a week of warm dry weather last week leading to early blooms and a proliferation of early insects. We had all waited eagerly for the sunset on Friday night, thinking that it was time we saw the bat family making it new rounds of the spring. Sadly there was no luck. We...

    BATS!

    I was in the back of my dads old Datsun pick-up. It was a blue color that pick-up. It was too cold out, so I climbed into the back and as I lay there in the back, I looked up and a buncha bats flew over. It was awesome.

    Bats In the Rain.

    The weather has finally turned for the worse. Yesterday the rain came down heavy all day, filling the water barrel to overflow. Last night we had our first frost since March. It was brief and left the ground shortly after sunrise. The day was cold and changeable. One minute...

    I Miss The Bats

    Our family used to have a cottage up north, surrounded by other relatives.We'd often have evening bonfires together.  Maybe roast weiners or marshmallows.  Watch the sun go down, then enjoy the night sky in front of the fire.It probably took me a few years to figure out what...

    I Miss The Bats.

    We've had a hard winter this year. Plant pots have exploded. The spring daffodils are only half their normal height. Nights are still cool enough to threaten a frost strong enough to kills the newly emerging buds. Somehow, the world has kept turning, rotating around the sun and...

    ISS In the Twilight.

    Sunshine and hosepipes today. If the sun hadn't stayed so low in the September sky it could have been an August weekend of distant memories. The morning brought Starlings in the 20's perching on every television antenna in the road. The bird song was wonderful. In the afternoon...

    A Spikey Friend.

    It's been cold and windy up on the hill the last few days. There haven't been any bats and very little evidence of anything else. The wind was still gusting this morning but the sun was shining and the black birds were singing. (One of them has learned to call like a Red Kite...

    Fiery Trails In the West and Close Bat Encounters.

    I was so happy today. Both Mum and Dad bats have returned. The sky at dusk was an incredible orange and I walked up to the apple tree to watch it fade. The flight paths for the airport have been moved away south from us again and there were 20 or so trails snaking across the...

    After the Passing of the North East Wind

    In the Shuswap

    Twilight Can Change Everything

    Kafka wrote that twilight was the strange time when everyone's heads drop momentarily and then we all carry on with our lives. He identified that there was a single moment between light and darkness that if identified could be used to a purpose. It's always held wonder for me...

    Swoops After Solstice

    Mid-summer passed over us while my head drooped lazily in the late evening air but the wonder of bats over water is finally mine. The garden residents are still coming out to play at night with an abundance of moths making easy meals. No sign of the young this year, I may have to...

    Strange Sunset Followed By Waning Moon.

    I have missed the bats these last few nights. They may have switched there feeding patterns, I don't know. Maybe there is something in their nature that, makes them move at this time of year. The afternoon weather was a real mixture. I could make out the tops of half formed...
