Bat House by the Pond

 
Posted by Picasa




This pond is located behind the Tallahassee Mall. It has a bat house sitting next to it. You can click on the image to see it better. I also posted a closeup picture of this bat house here. Please visit Watery Wednesday for more beautiful watery pictures!

I love bats! I never really understood why some people hate them. Hope this summer to get to a bat evening where a small group of people can get up close with some expert help.

So this is not a good place to hang around if you are a mosquito I guess! Love all the green.

Those bats will eat about all of the mosquitoes that emerge from the pond water, if any. I really like the pond area. It looks like a park setting to me.

Amazing how many of these there are.

Nice looking area to see. Never knew that they have Bat House's. I learn something new everyday! Thanks for sharing.

I've never heard of a bat house but I'd love to see it too...

Smarty pants! I always wondered what that was......

Very peaceful view with a fresh shade of green.

I have never seen or heard of a bat house before. Well, I've been accused of going batty, but that's different, I think.

In Texas, bats would swoop sometimes, but we didn't build houses for them.

Maybe this is for members of the Florida Legislature - the ones with tiny brains.

Seriously, this is a very nice shot, Lois.

It looks so peaceful and beautiful there. If I was a bat, I would live there! Free housing? Lots of free food? Who wouldn't?

Regina said...

This is a good shot Lois. I like the green scene. Good for the eyes..

I love watching bats. I'm sure they are greatly needed around this water.

Looks like a wonderful spot...I can't believe it's behind a mall! Is that spanish moss in the trees?

Lois said...

Yes it is Spanish moss! It's hanging in just about every tree in Tallahassee.

A bat house is something you don't see every day. What a nice place to have right by the mall. Nowdays it would be drop the kids off at the mall & go for a walk by the pond.
Lois, thank you so much for sharing your Marineland memories. I do remember when CA one closed down many of the animals were relocated to Florida. I am so glad that it is still open there.

Its wonderful that they put up a bat house in a public area so you can observe them at dusk ans dawn. Thanks for visiting, Lois
