Lying with my back to the ground, I smelled the new mown summer grass and watched the sky.  The edge of night had slipped across the yard and only the high clouds still showed the sun.


Amazing, little black creatures zigged and zagged across the sky. How did they move like that! I held my BB gun on my chest, cocked it, and aimed ahead of one of the bats. I shot…the bat swerved…I missed?!
