This wasnt my original choice for the theme which is why I took so long. We went out with one shot in mind and came home just in time for bed, soaking wet....It hasnt stopped raining for a few days, again..
This is one of the shots I got in Summer when these guys were hanging in the trees right outside our bedroom. Used a torch to spot them, then used the flash in the camera. Unfortunately it means bright eyes.

Hello Fiona,

Excellent shot. Very nice colors and contrast.



Hi Fiona,

The flowers and the tree are framing well the animal. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the animal(bat or a type of rat). The light of the flash is bringing out the colours. The nocturnal animal is fitting well with the Friday's theme. Have a nice day.


Those creatures are hard to photograph even in captivity. They bats at the San Diego Safari but difficult to take pictures of. Nice capture of this dude in its natural state. Well done, tfs.

Hi Fiona.

Quite the beast you captured hanging around your garden.
I like the accessory of the fur scalf, an evening out on the tiles...or rather under them.

stv ;o))
