I took this picture while paddling last Saturday. There was a lot of wildlife out and about. I saw great blue herons, sand hill cranes, swans, Canada geese, mallard ducks, mergansers, and I also saw a bat in the middle of the day. The bat kind of surprised me, because I have never seen one in the bright sunshine before. He dove out from under a tree, and just tapped the surface of the water about twenty feet in front of my kayak and the flew past me at about a paddle length away. It was a bat - no doubt. Kinda neat/weird.
