So excited to have a resident bat!

Isn't he adorable?  He showed up yesterday and attached himself to the side of our garage - doesn't even seem phased by the door opening and closing. 

Why am I so excited to have a bat living on my garage?  Well, truth be told, I'd be happier if he was in my garden - but on my garage is pretty good.  I may have to put up a bat house in the garden to make him more comfortable and to attract some of his friends.  I am excited because bats eat insects - insects that eat my plants.  Heaven knows I have plenty of Japanese Beetles that he can eat!
