On my visit to Bristol Zoo,uk this week I bumped into this little fellow, a Livingstones fruit bat and nearly had an heart attack hehe, he was near my head on a bush just by the exit door, I managed to get in that close for this shot, took the shot and it reached its wing out and held onto my camera. luckily for me a kind lady came and unhooked the camera from around my neck lol and I stood in one place for half an hour waiting for him to let go, haha my face was more funny than his hehe dawnx
