I found the cutest little day sleeping creature today, while cleaning up a shed. He was hiding in an otherwise quiet and untouched place and we disturbed his peace. I picked him up, gently, and placed him onto my hand to bring him to a safer place.
He slightly opened his wings when I walked into the sunlight, as if he’d be scared he’ll burn his gentle skin. A breeze picked up and must have given his little furry body a chill. He woke up for a moment and spread his wings all the way. I could see every tiny bone and vein on his majestic tiny wings. He was so beautiful!
Bats have always been fascinating to me. I would often see them fly by in the darkest of nights. Today was the first time, that I saw one up close. While I carried him to his new sleeping place, I felt his tiny heart beating against my palm.
