Micro Troll or Mini Bat?
This bat, a common pipistrelle, had been sleeping in its cozy bunk bed between the logs on the outside of a cabin amidst a peaceful highland forest in Norway, teeming with berries, grouse, elk (in Europe, this means a version of the moose, i.e. it's not what Americans call elk!), bogs and trout lakes: here

It was a bright and sunny July morning, nearly noon, and the creature didn't feel like getting up and taking off. But I was about to apply some resin varnish to the exterior walls of the cabin, so I just had to have this little troll move out.

Credit to the critter - thanks on his/her behalf! Actually, (s)he was so unwilling to move that I was just about to apply a kick:-) when she/he flew away.
Cheers

Interesting - moose/elk in Northern Europe??
I have to echo the previous commenter; what a
kick-ass photo of a micro troll/mini-bat !!!

I always thought SP was a bit BATTY!
And ... now I know for sure.

Better batty than bored stiff! Honestly, Larry, I prefer the BATman to the Spiderguy. And I prefer insects to spiders. The reason might be I hate the trapping tool that spiders invented. For sure my feelings about its virtual version are quite opposite.

In Scandinavia, you see or run into an Alces alces as often as you do in Canada.
