Bat Snacks In The Middle Of Broad Daylight (i)

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

(i) Apparently the northern bat (Eptesicus nilssonii), pohjanlepakko in Finland, hunting in the middle of a grey June day.

In high latitude areas, female northern bats fly during daytime because of the short nights.

Having watched the zigzag flight of bats before, I'm impressed that you got it in your viewfinder, and very impressed that it is in focus.

One of my luckiest frames in history, Ken. The first daylight bat ever! Camera in my hand!! And above all: That mighty 55 mm superzoom attached!!! :)

This lucky shot sits right above another recent lucky shot in your gallery. Keep 'em comming!

Many thanks for the comments. Of course the lens and dust problems are always here but thus far I'd like to think I somehow managed to catch the invisible eye contact and her lunch as well.


Extraordinary! I don't know how you did it! I am still out looking for stationary dragon flies and you are already moving up to the next level. What ever next........ ?


Nice one - David

Thank you, David. This was the only close-range frame I managed to capture before the rain got into picture. I was really surprised to find even some details.

Wow, capturing a bat in flight! Like

Thanks! The quality of the old WWII dogfight documents is purely coincidental here.
