  1. If you weigh both characters, the orchard owner is the bad guy.

    The poor bat, if it is only one, cannot make too much ravage in the harvest.

    It should be accepted as a guest! :)

    Pretty good haiku, BB!

    1. That's why I posed the question, Od, who's the culprit, who's the victim. It's really a nice thought of yours. I can see the big difference. Yup, right, doesn't matter just pick two or three bunches of fruits, the bat will be full! That's how a guest should be treated. :)

      Thank you, Od, for seeing from another perspective on what I wrote. I appreciate so much your comments. :)

  2. bats can be a nuisance sometimes....
    but looking on the brighter side, they would eat mosquitoes too...

    1. When I look at bats, I couldn't help thinking of vampires. The influence of scary movie is too much. Anyway, bats do play an important role in the ecosystem. Thanks for your kind words, Aunt Mary. :)

    1. It's unpleasant sight when all the fruits are gone from the trees! But that could be controlled by putting on big nets around the trees :)

      Thank you, Usha, for your kindness. :)
