Was closing up a hive just at dusk the other night and had an invasion by bats.
Musta been 10 of them and they would fly right up to me - within a foot of my head. I could see their little faces perfectly in the fading light. They were just circling around and I assume scooping up the bees that I had stirred up.
Would they get stung?
Would a beesting on tiny little bat cause problems? Probably not kill them, but maybe stun them long enough to land and not be able to fly for a while?
It was quite an airshow for about 10 minutes. Once all the bees went inside and the light had faded, the show was over. Very cool.
