What? No. We can't stop here. This is bat country.

When the City of Austin built the Congress Avenue Bridge they had no idea that about a million bats give or take a few hundred thousand would decide they were perfect digs and roost underneath. The locals were afraid at first but bat conservation groups did a good job in educating the public so now they've become a popular tourist attraction and each night at sunset you can watch them zoom out from under the bridge by the hundreds. Naturally I had to watch & take pictures = )
