California myotis bat

Myotis californicus


Small brown bat with black ears.


Sleeping inside a half-empty cardboard 6-pack of Dead Guy Ale on the back porch.


These bats normally roost under the cedar shakes on the house, but this one made a poor decision to hang out in something more likely to be handled. He was not happy when I disturbed him.
