Ever wondered what one million bats looks like? No? Me neither. But after going to the South Congress bridge last week and getting a glance at a few thousands of bats I can’t wait until August when I get to see a million. Apparently every year the pregnant female Mexican free-tailed bats come to Austin to stay under the bridge. And every night at dusk they suddenly wake up all at once and swarm out into the open. Thousands of bats flying against a purple and orange sky is a beautiful scene.
It’s something I definitely recommend everyone viewing for themselves!
