Hi Rado,very very great,impressive pic,wonderfull quality and animal not easy to found and to take so perfetc,my best compliments,Luciano
Again a great capture. I have read from Guinness book that Craseonycteris thonglongyai had 16 cm wingspan. I couldnt understand that time how can a few cm long animal had such big h-a-n-d-s :)

Hello Radomir, Very nice shot and lovely composition. Ganesh
Is this chap frozen over in the winters, Radomir? Do I see ice on its coat?
This picture has a great documentary value.
As usual, a perfect capture in all respects.
TFS and regards,

Hi Radomir, great portrait of strange creature with wonderful details and great sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio
Hi My dear friend Radek,
Another splendid shot of a bat. It is more atractive to search its biology:) your notes are excellent as usual. TFS. Have a nice Easter time my friend!
Ps. I have got David's movies which you mentioned.

A beautiful capture of this fine bat specimen in obvious torpor Radomir, I am astonished to see some icicles and water droplets over the dorsal hairs, either the isolation of the fur is perfect, or during the inactivity phase the basal metabolism of the bat plunges right down. Interesting situation indeed!
Many thanks for the dedication which makes me happy, but I am not a bat expert like our friend Ahmet who is really worthy of this dedication.
A great capture of a Whiskered bat covered in dew, which emphasises the 'whiskers'.
The lighting and sharpness are excellent and serve well to show the features of this species, (but you have to look at the teeth to distinguish it from brandtii).
Thanks again, Radek, and have a good Easter weekend,

I think I like this one the best of all!! It's a great capture of the bat in a fine pose. Details are very sharp and colours natural but best of all are the drops on its fur and it makes the whiskers really show up well! Well done! (Ivan will love it, I'll have to go and give him a hint! Ooops, he got here before me!:-)
TFS and cheers, Ulla

This is a wonderful bat image. This is original with water droplets all over the body. Sharp focus and beautiful composition.

Is this photo made in the open air, and not in a hole? Must be cold for him! I never see such kind of images. Splendid. The droplets on its fur are incredible. POV and BG are good. Regards and TFS BOB
many thanks for your excellent dedication. I am also happy sharing it with our joint friend and kind person Ivan. This is one of the best gifts for me.
Excellent capture of Myotis mystacinus in torpor. Its frozen moustaches visible perfectly. (As you know, "mystacinus" means "with moustaches").
Recently, this species was divided into several species; M. mystacinus [sensu stricto], M. aurascens (in Southern Europe and the Balkans and Turkiye to the Caucasus), M. alcathoe in the Balkans and Turkiye and others in Turkiye and eastwards. Polish population same as formerly: M. mystacinus.
Finally (for Ümit's question), "Chiroptera" originated from Old Grek "chiros" with meaning "hand" and "pteros" with meaning "wing". The bats fly with their hands and therefore they have long fingers. on the contrary, the birds fly with their arms and They dont need long fingers. Already fingers Ist, Vth absent, others blunt.
thank you very much again
best wishes cordially

too bad ... I'm getting used to those little vampires. :-)
Interesting seeing it all covered in the water droplets.
Great sharp details and very we good use of flash.
Very nice work.
How could you take such close-up photos and did not disturb this cute creature? Wonderful three-dimensional picture with plenty attractive details and crisp sharpness. Bravo. Well done and great note as always.

Hello radomir !
This is really a precious picture ! I love this dew-covered bat, it is cute and quite unusual. There are excellent sharp details and we can see very clearly the whiskers who gave this bat its name. Composition, POV and colors are excellent too. Very well one !

It's a very well focused, crisp sharp capture of this cute bat with lovely details. Water drops on the fur look beautiful. TFS
Crisp clear. Drops are lovely. Perfect POV and DOF.
This bat is real cute.
A 90 degree rotation might have been suitable. It looks like it lay on the floor, while I guess it was hanging on a wall/rock.
Brilliant shot. I never whitness any bat in winter. I know where to find them during the summer days sleep, but they hide somewhere else for the long winter.

Hi Radomir, What an amazing pic! Bats fascinate me and this one seems to be small and very interesting! bats are hard to be spotted and even harder to be captured. Very well done! Sharp in details and very interesting composition.
