Here's looking at You!

The night before Hurricane Irene, we were trying to figure out what was flying around a lamp post.  It was  diving and very sporadic. Just seemed  too big to be a moth, too small to be a bird, and definitely was not superman.

For a while the thought...maybe a cute little bat that likes all those yummy insects drawn to the light.

And then a quick landing on the dark pavement..it posed for me as if to say:

"Here's looking at You!"

Hi Margaret, Certainly not something I would want to find looking back at me. I had 3 grasshoppers on one of my plants today. I know people say they are good and eat the other insects but it has been eating on my nice plant. See a picture below.plants in inland empire Kristin Hamlton realtor

Gidget likes to eat it too but no grasshoppers!

He almost looks as though he was pausing for a quick prayer for you Margaret.

Joan, Some 'attitude' for sure!

William, Yes... here is a cute little bat

Wandanna, So had I said take a look at this preying mantis, you might have passed this one up?

Chris, I convinced him/her I needed the photo for my AR post.

Tom, Maybe that was the prayer knowing Hurricane Irene was approaching.

Jimmy, Oh if only there was a camera available for their debut. Would have loved to see them all.

Brenda, With a camera we can lengthen that time.

I think he was saying a prayer that his house -- and yours! -- would be spared the ravages of Irene.

Russel, Love it when you make my ears burn but "Can you explain the politics of ActiveRain?"

Jim F, I think so that's just what he did and it worked!

If I didn't know what that little critter was, I'd be frightened. Someone could take him and make a good B grade science fiction movie out of him. lol
