I was only able to capture one image of a Lesser Long-nosed Bat last evening. I suspect it has something to do with my lighting setup. My two theories are that either the light stands confuse the bat's sonar, making them believe it is too difficult to navigate or that the flashes emit sound at a frequency we cannot hear, but the bats can. Tonight I will move the lights further away from the feeder, hoping that more will fly through. 

The lesser long-nosed bat has an elongated muzzle, which helps it push its head deep into Saguaro cactus blossoms. When it is done feeding, it emerges from the flower with its head is covered in pollen. That pollen will ultimately fertilize another plant. 

I am fascinated by the synergistic balance our creator bestowed upon this world. Learning its nuances and secrets and sharing them with others is a tremendous blessing. 

I remain his scribe.
