[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The house of my grand parents is full of bats - there are hundreds of them during the summer, I really like these winged creatures. During the day they hang under the roof, and early in the morning or late in the evening they fly everywhere around the house, feeding on flies and mosquitos.

This one was hanging on the wall, head down. I was kneelins under him to take this photo. I'm still amazed about how close the bats allowed me to get, they only flew away when the lense of my camera was at 30 cm from them. It's wonderful to see them from this close.

Hi,Valerie,so cute model :)Nice image with good colours and point of view.

Good to see some action from you on TL again.

Never seen them this close, I've seen them fly many times but never hanging up close. I like the details in this photo. A pitty the wing is croped off.

Bonjour Valerie,
you are brave to get that close, they give me the creeps. Very well captured, sharpness, POV and details are very nice.

Bonsoir Valeri
