[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Maybe I should start by giving credit to my girlfriend who in fact did took the picture while I was steering the tiny animal.
This is a tiny bat we found in a sea cave nearby tiny village of Yahgangga in West Bali, actually part of a small colony, if a few hundreds will be small for a cavern a little larger than a tent.
He looks pretty fierce, doesnt he?

Hi there..

What kind of bat is it ?

Love the details, and he has very sharp teeth.

Some details about the shot will be great.!!


Hello Radu,
yes, I am surprising when I see it. This is very beautiful Molossidae species with free half part of tail and tragus and antitragus on ears. I am not sure its species and I can say only family.
Great capture. Visiting this region and its bats are in my dream. Thanks for sharing, best wishes

Hi Radu,
What a great action capture!Excellent background and light make it really beautiful.
