Hi I think I got it by suggesting it was of the species “snailicus fasto crawlious” ( like the Roman in "Life of Brian" call Biggus Dickus?
Actually, having lived in France for 10 years, I can explain the phenomenum.
What you have come across is the 'quivering' or 'singing snail.'
It's curious behaviour was first noted in 1676 when an artist was recording a domestic scene in a French kitchen using a camera obscura with a reflex mirror. The noise and vibration of the mirror was sufficient to alert the creature to the presence of the camera obscura. Believing itself to be the centre of attention, the snail began to perform.
Whether or not the snails are sensitive to active (as opposed to passive) autofocus is open to debate, but since that date these creatures, 'elona vibrantibus horrenda vox,' have been a bit of a nuisance to other wildlife as they don't sing (or dance) very well - hence the tendency for wildlife to suddenly disappear at the sight of a camera.
The OP should buy a CSC, SLT or some other TLA - or stick to photographing bats.
I hope this illustrates how panning helps?
Ah! Panning...... an almost lost art, except amongst, Aerophilographers, Chiropterists and gold diggers.
Excellent action shot, by the way.
