This is an image from the Ladybird Hike and Bike trail of the anticipated bats coming out from under the Congress Bridge in Austin, with the crowds of people on the bridge and below all waiting for their nightly appearance. The lighting was very good this day with a nice reflection under the bridge along with some nice clouds and blue skies. These mexican freetail bats have made their home under the bridge for more than forty years and the estimated number is somewhere around 1.5 million of them.  It is an amazing site to see.
