This set of shots were taken in a cave within the grounds of Fuengirola Zoo. It was so dark in there I thought the 'bogey man' may be in there too at one time LOL. Taken through thick glass and the cameras built in flash to enable me to focus, it wasn't easy because like birds, they are extremely fast movers and it was a case of pot luck in the end. Out of about 30 shots I was only happy with 5 or 6.
Version 1 Close up.
Version 2 Full shot cropped.
Version 3 Is V2 rotated 90%
Version 4 Id V2 rotated 90% again.
I have done this to save you all doing handstands to view the Bats head.
70% of bat species are insectivorous, locating their prey by means of sonar. Of the remainder, most feed on fruits and their juices. Only three species sustain themselves with blood. Some species even prey on vertebrates: these are the leaf-nosed bats (Phyllostomidae) of Central America and South America, and the two bulldog bat (Noctilionidae) species, which feed on fish. At least two species of bat are known to feed on other bats: the Spectral Bat, also called the American False Vampire bat, and the Ghost Bat of Australia. One species, the Greater Noctule bat, is believed to catch and eat small birds in the air.
He's not a pretty guy, but he has at least given you all a smile LOL. Hope you like him.
