yesterday the kids were playing in the street in front of our house… i ran inside to put dinner in the oven (but could see them from the window). i come out and they were excitedly yelling, "we found a baby frog!" i was excited because, though i would never want to touch a baby frog, i hope they will be braver than me. so i was encouraging it… until i got up closer.
OH, that's NOT a frog. get away from it!!! it was a baby bat! and it was so sick looking. it was about 6 inches from where the kids were playing in a puddle and doing sidewalk chalk. it was only a little bit bigger than a quarter. it was hurt or maybe just brand new so it couldn't really walk.
so, i got out my camera and took a few shots to document our find. i've never done a macro photo but figured this was a good chance to try it out since my subject was a bit handicapped. :) for the photographers, i used these macro filters that i bought for about $15… just thought i'd give "macro" a try without having to commit to buying a new lens. they are kind of fun and i won't be buying a macro lens anytime soon. not my thing. but, if it were, i could stay busy for months photographing the bugs in my house.
so here is our baby bat… who was gone the next day. eaten my our friendly rats, i'm sure.
