Motorcycle Adventure 01 - Day 7

In Austin Texas, there is a bridge under which a little over one million bats hang out (pun intended). Every evening at dusk between March and November they depart and head out for dinner. People come out both one and below the bridge to witness the flight of the bats. It's quite a sight to see.
Hi, Ron. I've heard of that but not seen it. Thanks for sharing. My daughter just flew back from Austin today. You working now or travelling? Take care of yourself.

Eek! Mice with wings...not my favorite thing, but a great capture of them all.

Actually the bats fly out each evening to see why all the people are hanging over the edge of the bridge and lining the river bank. They all reckon it is a really funny sight

Interesting sight beautifully captured in limited light Ron, we don't see this amount together in the UK:)

The bats are amazing but I'm even more surprised by all the people who come out to watch them.

The Congress Ave Bridge is the place to be in Austin! You haven't lived till you've seen the bats! Austin's motto is "Keep Austin Weird", after all. That's a beautiful photograph of the Austin skyline. This is a huge fav for me.

Bats are so very necessary to our environment, and I think they're quite wonderful! What a sight this must have been to see! A wonderfully unique sight to share!

Someone else posted a picture of bats on a bridge - think it was here! It must be a well publicised event. You are on a motorbike adventure?

Wow. Stunning capture. Hey, Ron, where are you? Have you returned from your bike trip, and/or have you quit 365. Hope not -- the quittng, I mean.

@aglennc @joysfocus @summerfield How's this for a late reply?!? Things got very busy for me in the midst of this motorcycle adventure and I had to go underground for a while. But I'm back as of the first of the year - armed with a new camera even! Missed you all and many thanks for your concerns.

Wow! They would be flying so fast and are so small, good focus would be difficult but this is the best!
