These are not the most detailed photos I've taken but...
they tell a story just as much as the fine tuned pictures.
Every year, up in the peak of the roof we are hosts to a maternity ward of sorts.
They come and set up at the same time every year.
We can hear them with their high pitched murmers as the sun goes down and then...
out they go...foraging for insects to feed the new babies.
You can pretty much set your clock to the time when they begin to fly out.
As soon as the moths and mosquitoes come out.
It starts at between 9:10 and 9:15 and lasts for about 5 minutes until you can't keep track of them anymore.
Flutters in the corner of your eye.
Gone out into the night before you barely see them.
This is one of the more difficult subjects I've photographed.
Like trying to catch someone blinking an eye.
Although steeped in stories of horror and myth...
they are fascinating animals who do us a world of good.
They eat 1/3 of their body weight in insects every night.
Imagine the world without them.
