Little brown bats (Myotis lucifugus). Two male little brown bats hanging upside down side-by-side in a bat roost. The little brown bat is one of the most common bats in North America. It roosts in trees and buildings during the summer, and moves underground to caves and disused mines for hibernation during the winter. Little brown bats feed on insects. Male little brown bats often live separately from females during the summer months when the females give birth to and care for their young. Many bat species hibernate during the winter. Photographed in New York, USA.
