Hello Paul,
An awesome image of these two Long-Nosed Bats who are unintentionally pollinating these plants as they feed. The quality is outstanding as always and their behavior is certainly a sight not often seen, let alone photographed. A super job of capturing such a unique moment!!

Hello Paul,

This is an outstanding capture and, in a perfect world, worthy of 100 points .... and 5 shots of mescal on the TN house! ;) This is my first glimpse into the private world of these flighty mammals and what an introduction it is. Superb lighting, crisp frozen motion, and incredible, unscripted animation. My only regret is that you camera settings/ lighting details are not currently appearing on my screen .....

Kind regards,


Hello Paul
AMAZING scene, FANTASTIC photo!!

Nicely captured with sharp details. It would be nice if you could detail your technique a bit.

Hallo Paul
This is an excellent macro with details of these flying mammals beautifully seen, especially against the dark backdrop. The clarity of both the bats are superb, the presentation as a whole is pleasant and I give you a well deserved smiley. Not just because of the points but also because I am happy to see a posting from you again. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello, Wow! This is amazing to be able to capture two bats simultaneously. The detail is so strong we can see the veins on the wings. Perfect color and quality. I checked out your website and it is great. Good luck and thanks for sharing,

Hi Paul
A brilliant shot of bats, and I add your work to my theme "animals feeding". I wonder, How long you had to wait, and how may shots later you obtained this perfect one ?!?
Anyway thanks for sharing your work.

Warm greetings from the Tzaneen Dam in Limpopo, South Africa
