Austin Bat Watch – This image capture the Austin bat watch at Congress Ave in downtown along Lady Bird Lake in the downtown with part of the cityscape. Every night right before dusk crowds start to gather at the Congress Bridge over Lady Bird Lake for the outpouring of bats from under the bridge in downtown Austin. Not every night is the Austin bat watch a success because sometimes the bats are lazy and come out at their leisure because the food is plentiful so you never know what you will get. On this night thats what we got fat and happy bats that didn’t feel the need to rush out at dusk to put on their nightly show as they do on most days. So they came out in smaller batches after dark so trying to catch them in the dark is not always easy but the pre show of the crowds and the boats as the line up in the water on kayaks, tour boats, water bikes or whatever it takes to catch a good view of the bat can be seen here. On any given night this area becomes almost festive with music and large crowds. In this view you see the crowds of people on top of the Ann Richards Congress Ave Bridge with the Austin skyline in the background as people are waiting for the bats to come out for their nightly show. There are over a 1.5 million bats in Austin and it has become a part of the lifestyle and a huge tourist attraction to come and watch these wonderful creature fly out together every night on their search for insects. The bats eat between 10,000 to 20,000 of insects so we should all appreciate that. dsc-3640
