    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...

    Snow and Ghouls

    It's been a while since I posted here. The bats I have grown to know so well are now safely away from any harm for the winter. The autumn took a sharp downwards turn this week. With the sortening days, the temperature had been creeping lower so slowly that the trees were quite...

    Flapping

    Carlsbad Caverns is the best for this.  They have an amphitheater where you get to view all the bats flying out for their nightly rampage.  Incredible creatures. We stayed in Roswell on the way back towards home.  We watched the bats catching bugs in the field...

    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...

    Murky Twilight.

    The evening air was heavy with moisture. The temperature has been a bit strange for October with temperature reaching 20 centigrade on Sunday afternoon. Tonight, as the sun went down somewhere unknown ans unseen, a very fine drizzle skipped around on a light breeze. One of the...

    Bat In the Headlights and Shooting Star.

    The last few days have been fraught with business and life worries. I finally got outside last night at nine in the evening. The moon was still below the horizon gradually moving it's time of appearance into the late evening as each day goes by. Soon it will be half it's size and...

    In the Shuswap

    Our friends have a cabin on the Shuswap.  We spent a lovely evening with them sipping wine and watching the sun go down.  They told us ahead of time about the nightly rituals of the creatures who live there.  During supper we were visited by humming birds (they...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Summertime

    One of my favorite summer pasttimes is to watch bats flutter about at dusk.  Just sit and...watch.  It's amazing.  I always get pissed off when people tell me they're either scared of bats, or think they're dirty or all rabid.  I try to explain to them...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    After the Passing of the North East Wind

    Distant Thunder In the Twighlight.

    The afternoon was strange. Warm weather and still air with tall storms drifting northwards to the east and west of us. Rain fell lightly in the the sunshine and insects drifted lazily from flower to flower. As the early evening drew in the air became much cooler. I watched the...

    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...

    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...

    Brothers of the Night

    Bats creep me out. Once in a while one will appear in my hut and fly around,this makes me squeel and cover my hair. Remember the tale about bats getting tangled in long hair? Also,I almost stepped on one barefoot that was infected with rabies {I was preggers at the time}. So...

    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...
