Austin has nothing on SA when it comes to bats. Had a few flying around the 'hood tonight and caught a few shots of them:

Great pics! I've seen lots of bats flying around but never close enough for a picture.

I just had some removed from up underneath one of our buildings at work. There's a cave on the property and sometimes they get confused. Didn't want somebody accidentally making contact with any... and then there were the individuals I heard talking about knocking them down....

Yall should go to Old Tunnel Wildlife Mgmt Area when the bats are living there. You have to pay to go to the lower level seating area but it is a wild thing to have hundreds and hundreds of bats flying 3 feet away as they take off for the night.i Very much worth the trip then have a hamburger from the cafe next door (they were ranked in the top ten burger joints in Texas Monthly last year.)

The Riverwalk maps, the ones that show 'you are here', indicate seasonal bat colonies along its route.
