    All I can say here, is "Holy shiite, Batman! Wonderful job." Both shots are considerably the best bat photos I have ever seen.

    G'day all

    The bats have a wingspan of about 2ft - 60cm, maybe a touch more at times and as they fly past they are at the speed of most birds of the same size. Damn hard to get into the frame and get a good focus tho!!

    Here's some more...

    I'm not sure, but #4 looks like your bat is a male and pretty well hung one, too. :clapping:

    Really nice shots. Don't think I've ever seen a bat in flight shot.
