I had just spent ten minutes standing on a bench, aiming my camera towards this subject, which was less than a foot away. A passerby approached me and asked, "Are you taking a picture of the bat?" "What bat?" I asked. Then I looked and saw an adult bat, asleep, hanging under the object I was photographing! It was literally in front of my eyes the whole time I had been there, yet I had not seen it. It made me wonder, "how much else in life am I missing?" And, "what can I do to open my eyes and see the world as it is?"
