Roy Mangersnes - Night of bats


This time of the year is great for seeing bats out in the evening. Go out along lakes, at the edge of forests or near an old cabin. There might be a bat flying around.

    impressive Roy, the exposure, use of flash, the timing, to capture the creature, cause they are fast, wow

    Great image Roy! What means "fired" concerning the flash?

    Thanks guys. I have been using two flashes in this image.
    Werner; "Fired" is the standard derivation from the exif, telling the flash was "fired" :-)

    This is a great shot. The bat, the focus, everything works.

    By the way - what you see inside the cabin is another bat flying around. These are common Pipistrelle bats roosting in the walls of this cabin in the woods.
