Diary readers know that I like to feature all the creatures that I spot in Deerfield. Our latest creature feature -- the common bat.
I spotted this little guy or girl several weeks ago hanging under the eave of the overhang on our retreat. He seems to have adopted this spot as his permanent home. I don't know much about bats, except they are great consumers of mosquitos. I hope this one eats his fill because we have more than enough to go around.
