Apropos of nothing really

A photo of bat embryos. Look at their little feet And do they not appear to be wearing football helmets?. A reminder for me today that I am part of a larger world, that keeps chugging along with or without my notice.

This was part of a whole series of microscope photos. They are all very good.

Who was it who said the world was just awesome?

Bats? No way. Those are Darth Vadar embryos.

We have some serotine bats but it's the long eared which are a nursery colony. *hugs them* Or would hug them if they weren't away in their winter roost somewhere.

Got to be careful hugging bats.
