My hosts drove us to the University of Florida Bat Houses to wait for the bats to fly out at dusk. WOW! They were something to see. Hard to focus as it was getting dark and they were flitting and flying.
And then as we stood there, a strong aroma filled the air. P- ewwww!
We watched the murmuration of bats in the sky. Thousands and thousands of bats. Creating dark clouds of undulating patterns. Off to eat insects until dawn.
