    Excellent! Creepy, but a terrific picture!

  • I thought he was a bit creepy too, but still a fasinating creature.

    Excellent capture! :-)

  • He wasn’t easy to capture. The lighting was awful to work with & and they take off so fast.

    This would be an excellent Halloween card!!

    Great work!

    Just curious: is this an albino bat or did you manipulate something??


  • No maniplutation. Just converted it to black & white. He’s not albino. The lighting in the enclosure makes him look that way. The enclosure was dark, but with red/orange dull lighting. He happened to be hanging by one of the lights, which is why I could take his pic with no flash.
