Hit by a bat

I haven’t posted anything for a while because since I got back from New Zealand, it’s been relatively quiet with just getting back into the swing of things. I’ve taken some nice pictures lately, and tonight, I headed for Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair, the little peninsula that faces the harbour bridge and opera house for some night shots of the New Year’s heart. Every New Year’s, there is a new icon that they place on the bridge which they leave lit for several days after.

Anyhow, after my photoshoot, I was walking back towards Woolloomooloo when I approached some branches, a bat flew out and hit me on the head. Most people I think probably haven’t even seen a bat before, much less feel the fur of one rub across their forehead and head. The bats here are quite big too, and when he flew off the tree at me, it was like someone had thrown a cat at my head–they’re THAT big. Obviously it scared me to death, but since I had seen them flying around all night, I figured that’s what it had been.
