Bats Belong Outside the House

Bats Belong Outside the House

Bad Bat
[Kodak Z712 at 70mm f/4.8 ISO-64 1/125sec]

This picture dates back to 17 August, 2007 when my brother found a bat in his room. While I certainly prefer shooting wildlife over any other subject, I generally prefer doing it over much greater distances and hopefully with some obstructions between us. However, after several normal shots, I decided to chance getting underneath him and shooting upwards for a more unique angle. Afterwords, I managed to trap him in a shoebox and release him outside, where he belongs. We still haven’t figured out how he got in in the first place, but thankfully there hasn’t been a repeat.
