the bats are at it again. in early july, this maternal colony (all females) reproduces, more than doubling in size  to about 200,000 – 250,000 bats.

at nightfall, they spill out by the hundreds, funneling off into the sky, disappearing into evening. it’s quite beautiful

new photo + words on habit today.
