Short-nosed fruit bat
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|A short-nosed fruit bat (Cynopterus sphinx) hanging from a guava tree in our garden. Unusually, I found this individual in broad daylight, and exposed, - atypical for what I believe are mass roosting species in more sheltered locations (bats are also known to thermoregulate while roosting and roosting habitat is of consequence). But they love the guava fruits and are all over the place in the evening/night. Perhaps this fellow just wanted to sneak a few extra bites on the sly! |

This is something we don't see often!! Great eye contact, nice natural colours and composition.
Very well done and thanks for sharing .
Good (or lucky) use of soft focus, very creative and a good (or lucky) choice of subject. Yet technically simple, I find your image pretty captivating and with a lot of soul. A very GOOD photo!
