I've been seeing a lot of bats lately while I'm in the pool at dusk. Most are very small and fly in a fluttery motion, and may dive bomb the pool, but not too low. Last night, I noticed a different species. Much bigger and not as "fluttery". Flew more straight, and actually swooped down to skim the pool surface a few times. Getting a drink, I suppose. The big one seemed darker, and seemed to have a white stripe on the bottom of each wing (in the center, front-to-back). I suppose the stripe may have been one of it's wing bones.
