The Bat

This is the bat we rescued out of our swimming pool on July,11. I found him at 7:30 am. Then I picked him up with our pool net and set him on the deck. It was about 3:00 pm when he was completely dry. We then took him off the deck and put him under a tree so he would not get too hot.

He liked to stretch his wings. While he was in the shade he put his wing over his head and went to sleep.

It was about 10:00 pm when we went to check on him and he was gone! We are glad he lived.

    Loved your Bat story! Glad he recovered and
    flew away. He will be able to eat many of those
    pesty mosquitos!
    Enjoying the Pool these hot days too!

  2. Great job telling our story boys. :-)

  3. I like to see bats outside - eating all those bugs. I just don't like when they sneak in the house. Good pictures of him - wonder how he got in the pool.
