Unwanted Visitor

When I unrolled our awning on the second day of our stay at Wakonda State Park I discovered this unwanted visitor. It looked like a dead bat, but when I went to knock it down the darn thing spread its wings and flew around scaring the begeebees out of me.

That would be enough to scare the begeebes out of anyone especially when you are thinking it's dead and all of a sudden it decides to fly.
