I have only seen a few in my childhood...although one was trapped inside my wilderness home in 2003. A great picture. To me it is somewhat risky working with these creatures. I feel trepidation. Very clear and interesting to see.

Hi Radomir, great capture, this is the first time that i see this lovely creature on TN, splendid colors, wonderful details and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio
WOW! what a lovely capture of this fierce looking Bat. Is it a blood sucker (vampire) or a fruit sucker. Nice composition and details. Thanks a lot for sharing.
Trogloladny jest ten nietoperek ;-) Fajnie skomponowane, dobra ostrosc. Moze kontrast (na uszach :-) moglby byc lepszy ale to byla jaskinia i nietoperz i raczej go sobie nie mogles przestawic w inne miejsce. Notka swietna, jak czlowiek malo wie o roznych dziwnych stworach

Widzę, że wsród większości uczestników TN jestem całkiem raczkujacym fotoamatorem. Dobrze jednak, że są portfolia mogące dawać przykład dobrej fotografii. Jest się z czego i od kogo uczyć. Foto ładne, zdaję sobie sprawę, że wykonane w trudnych warunkach ale udało się.
Nice capture of a Species of Horseshoe Bat. After looking it up in my books at home I think this might be Rhinolophus mehelyi. I am no expert on bats but the quality of this shot is good enough to be able to establish an ID.
Well done, thanks and have a nice weekend!

This creature looks like a cartoon character, this is amazing. The picture is very well done with excellent details and exposure. You were very close! What an amazing animal, it looks so strange to me but I think it is beautiful at the same time :) This is an unusual post :)

Wow, this one looks a bit like an upside-down soldier with two helmets on his head!! Excellent capture of this interesting cave dweller showing very sharp details and suitably dark colours. Well done!

Absolutly fantastic! What a magnificent shot of this peculiar creature! Wonderful sharpness and details for such a dark place. That's something I couldn't do with my camera :(. I am really impressed and delighted.
The note is also very good.
Congratulations and TFS

Oh my gosh! I didn't know what to expect when I clicked on the thumbnail. It gave me a start. I am glad that the flash didn't over brighten the image because the subdued light is very effective. It's a great shot.

Splendid shot and amazing how they manage to balance like that. Immaculate sharpness and superb exposure with natural colours. The face looks scary. Excellent POV to portray it and very nicely composed. Kudos.

very expressive portrait. Wonderful. Fabulous details and colours. And coming with excellent notes, very well informing. Thank you! My best regards,
this nice shot belongs to Rhinolophus hipposideros. Quality, sharpness and other very nice. I read good notes by you.
I saw interesting thing. One of them, magura (correctly magara) means cave in Turkish, Arabic. contrary Dupnisa cave, one of the most famous cave in Turkiye, mean cave in Bulgaria, as I know.
shortly Magura cave refer Cave's cave. Dupnisa cave similarly means Cave's cave or cave of cave:)
Information on cavernicolous animals given by you is very useful. I tell such a information in zoogeography lesson.

Thanks for sharing this MOST, MOST, MOST unique image.
A very well presented composition.
Loved your note too.
I tried to photograph them in the Calgary zoo with my Sony DSC H9. It has "night vision' capacity; however, am not happy with the results. Shall try again someday.
Greetings from Canada from Mario.

It´s unusual to see bats in its natural environment i TN and this is really great. Excellent soft illuminaton and natural colours. Nice detailed close-up.
Je ne crois pas avoir déjŕ vu des photos de chauves -souris de cette qualité. Quelle netteté, avec une belle lumičre, pour un sujet difficile ŕ maîtriser. Bravo !
