This is one of my first wilderness scribbles, dating back more than 10 years ago. I’ve always admired the bats that swept through my campsites at dusk on the PCT. Their quick, jerky movements and darting shadows provided a bit of entertainment while I was setting up the tent.
I made this picture in a summer-session wildlife illustration class at UCSC. I thought I’d lost it, but I found it by accident the other day. Now I’m blogging it, mostly to preserve it in case I misplace it again.
