walk with me wednesday at dusk

summer begins June 21, 2:06 P.M. EDT

These are the days of longest light...early sunrises, late sunsets...the days are full, and dusk seems to take it's time before turning to darkness.

At this time of year, the dusk is alive and full of activity. There are moths and mosquitoes, nighthawks and bats and oh, so many bugs. Tonight when I took my walk, the bats were my escort. They were too fast to photograph, swooping and fluttery, and circling and disappearing. I wanted to know what kind they were, but they are much to fast for me to identify.

If you are interested in reading more about the kind of bats they could be, here is a link that might be helpful.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a bat in my neighborhood, but surely there are some out there. I'd welcome them eating all the bugs!

I've been sitting out at dusk to look for bats. We only have a few, maybe two or three that stay around the yard. I love bats and like fireflies, are really a sign of summer for me.
