i mean, hey, why not love bats? sure, i didn't really love them before we went on a bat walk the other week (in fact, maybe i was a little scared of them) but now i think they're pretty cool.
it was led by these two lovable and kooky volunteers from bats northwest.
they came with all sorts of visual aids and an unbridled enthusiasm for all things bats. seriously, these people really love bats.
they also had real taxidermic bats. eep!
but the real attraction was the bats who come to feed in the trees by greenlake at dusk. we waited as the sun set, and one of the bat people had a bat sensor (no kidding) so you could hear the bats as they approached.
and sure enough, they came. how cool is that!
and even though i'm now somewhat fond of bats, this is still about as close as i want to get to them.
