Day time Bat !!

On my way to the woods I saw something flitting around near some trees, at first I thought it was a butterfly but as it got closer I could see it was a bat. It was still very light this was at 4:38pm. I've not seen bats out this early before.

I wonder if it has anything to do with all the rain we had last night, perhaps the bat was unable to feed as the midges were probably unable to fly.

Perhaps this one was playing clever and making the most of all the midges etc flying in the sunshine.......I have no idea, or maybe sometimes they do fly in daylight....

I took lots of photos, this was a lucky shot.
