From the Flickr photo/macro description:
Bats can’t launch from a flat horizontal surface, they need to fall first. Normally you should leave a healthy, grounded bat to crawl up something in order to launch itself, but in this case the bat was a healthy juvenile pipistrelle and in a house with three cats… I launched it out of the window before they found it.
Never handle bats without wearing gloves and always consult a bat expert before you do anything. Bats are a protected species in the UK and are very difficult to care for.
Seriously; if you find a bat in distress, call a bat expert, they won’t mind!
Need help with a bat?
Call the Bat Helpline
0845 1300 228 [UK Number]
I wasn’t able to find a similar number for people in the United States, but please, please, be careful around bats. My grandmother was once bit by a bat, and she can tell you, rabies shots are not a nice thing.

In the US contact your local Bat Working Group (elsewhere I’m sure you can contact a bat conservation organization and they can help you out). Unfortunately the national Bat Working Group website is down, so I can’t link to it, but I’m sure you can pull up a local Working Group or conservation organization pretty easily on google…

A few weeks ago, I found an photograph that Emi took of a group of walruses, and I thought it could be used so perfectly as the climax for the epic Bucket Saga.
I sent it to I Can Has Cheezburger, a blog that my sister and I have a love-hate relationship with (mainly I love it, she hates it), hoping they’d post it on their site, but they haven’t yet. Perhaps I shouldn’t have sent it as an attachment, perhaps they just get a lot of emails (it’s amazing, they’re less than three months old, but they get at least 25,000 hits a day, and they’re about to be reach the top 1,000 blogs on Technorati’s ranking system), but they haven’t posted it yet.
I kind of like it a lot, so I thought I’d share it.
Update: lol lukit sweet rite?

Oh no, I can’t seem to stop.
This isn’t an image macro blog, I swear.
Emi’s going to kill me…
You can look at the originals by clicking the images. Okay, okay, I’ll… stop.
