Day 3/365: Super moon...

...and bats

It is said, by those in certain professions, that a full moon brings out the erm, 'most interesting' aspects of certain personalities...close relatives who worked in medical centres and the like, always expected very busy nights when the full moon showed up. 

What was apparent this morning was the enormous pull on the earth's tidal forces with the super moon, which I caught early this morning, setting over the hill in suburbia. 

Moon over the wires

Zeroing in...

Bats overhead/overheard

We were driving around a little while later and the tide was higher than normal in many parts of the coast. Later, the bats flew over...not that I would make a direct connection with a full moon in the morning and bats in the evening....but there they all were.
