Hi John,

Nice pic.

Actually, bats are pretty cool - mammals without feathers who figured out how to fly.

Imagine how handy that would be if we had figured it out too!

Hi John;

WOW! Very nice pictures. I thank you for sharing with us. Good Luck!

John:  Cool pic!  I remember the first time I saw a bat.  It was in my Uncle's backyard.  Scard the crap out of me.  Thought it was a bird, but didn't understand the way it was acting.

Jojn, do you have the bat house listed or is it a FSBO? crazy pic.

Posted by Jen Anderson (Exit By the Bay Realty) about 10 years ago

Those bats look very large. What type were/are they?

Debi - They are fruit bats

Jan - Very funny. It's actually a commercial multi-family listing :-)

Chris Ann - Bats can be scary. They are also very beneficial.

Bob - Interesting. Do you think if I got a cape I could fly with the bats? :-)

Eric - Don't be a sissy!

Tina and Anthony - Thank you for your comments.

Very creepy, but I would be fascinated to be there and get a good look at them.  I bet it is interesting to see them up close, while they are contained.

John, I love going to the Oakland Zoo near my house and hanging out with the bats!  They are so cool and fascinating to observe up close.  Thanks for the pic!

Wow, those things are HUGE. The bats I remember seeing on the west coast were little tiny things. Thanks for sharing!

Looks like a spooky little place but cute picture!

We places a bat house in our yard and enjoy seeing they swoop by eating bugs. We never get to see them just hanging out.

Posted by Terry & Bonnie Westbrook, Westbrook Realty - Grand Rapids Forest Hills MI Re (Westbrook Realty Broker-Owner) about 10 years ago

Yes, as Terry says, we never see bats just hanging. I do enjoy seeing them flying around though - expecially knowing that they are eating mosquitos. Cool photo, John.
