Bats over Congress Avenue 524-1

Austin, Texas

On a warm summer evening, folks line up along the Congress Bridge that spans Ladybird Lake to watch the bats rise from beneath the bridge and head into the night. Every evening from late May until early fall, these bats pour into the sky in search of dinner. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
