Outstanding k and 2 views on google. I'll be catching up to Jean Evans before long!!!

Well, just a hint: you need to catch 3 bats in a row looking at you longingly. Now that WOULD get the views!!! :D

Do they hang by only one foot? Hanging by their toes on one foot? Interesting.

Great sky too. I like!

That title doesn't make them sound very endearing. Poor little things. They've just started a colony here in Commonwealth park where we have Floriade. Not every one's too happy about that. Great shot H!Like!

Cheers, Paul

HI Johny, Jean and Paul - they certainly hung by one leg when they were waking up and stretching before their night on the town Jean. They are the only bats with hairy/furry legs I think Paul (and I could see them on the enlarged pic). I can imagine they would not be too welcome at Floriade....but I have learned they are fabulous pollinators so they need a home...somewhere, just NIMBY!!! H

Best regards.
