Along The Serpentine Trail
Calero County Park, Santa Clara County, CA
Late afternoon walk to the pond and back.
Found dead trailside, like a crumpled autumn leaf.
No apparent injuries.
Soft gold with buff underbelly.
A Western Red Bat ( Lasiurus blossevillii )
A light rain had fallen for most of the day, hence water droplets on fur.
Rigor well set; did not attempt closer examination.
Placed body a ways off trail beneath an oak. It disappeared overnight.
Trailside daffodils near an abandoned homesite.
Alas! These cheerful heralds of spring no longer adorn the path.
