Now this will make someone smile!

Yesterday it was suggested that I move on to taking photos of bats. In the famous words of all Blue Peter's one I did earlier!

Its a group of old bats that I found at the end of term during the big clear out at school .

Thanks for looking.

This is so clever. I see these bats have really been banging up the runs, nice and old. Wonder if these bats could catch a cricket?

After todays efforts in Sri Lanka maybe they should put their bats in the bin, nice unusual image, thought it was pens when i saw the thumbnail.
The thumbnail had me as well I thought they were knives, anyway good angle shot, nice detail

A great idea. its different thats why it works for me, Your control with the depth of field has been handled very well indeed.

I can almost smell the linseed oil! Really evocative image.
