One hairy bat

A momentary respite from piglets. Can you believe the hairiness of this bat??
There it was, clinging to the bedroom curtain, upsidedown of course, one eye open, giving me the look. My, but you're hairy I said. I have no idea what it was thinking, but "you're one to talk" might have been in its mind.
There's enough of the fluffy matter there to create a decent portion of chest wig. I am now on the hunt for a small gold medallion to hang around its neck. Just to complete the outfit.

Thank you. I requested for a picture of your bats and I got one - what more could a blogger ask for!

You could use that creature as a living powder puff! Ladies do still powder their noses don't they?

I like it Mrs N, I like it!

SS - we are but here to serve....

WW - it's not fowl, it's fur!

F'pot - they are seriously abundant round here, especially in my bedroom.

YP - you'll have to ask a laydee.

Mopsa, You were asking about my cider labels...I make my own. If you ever want any labels just give me a shout, I'll e-mail some over to you.

Must be a cold climate bat.

Wow! What a gorgeous little creature. I think bats are a much maligned species. I particularly love fruit bats - they are like little bears with wings. Have put a bat box up in hope of attracting some of our own. Hope we don't get the same amount of bat splat as you though!

Mopsa said...

Welshcakes - well, now yo know!

Mrs Nesbitt - how very kind - I do my own labels but they don't look half as swish as yours - what software do you use??

James - at the moment it is a wet weather bat...:(

Sarah - a little bear with wings! Exactly!
