"Tropical Bats - biodiversity in action"

5 of 12

Another fruit eating species, this bat is photographed using Infra Red light on an Infra Red sensitive sensor (to not disturb the bats foraging) while flying around a tree full of ripe figs. It can bee seen that it is a pregnant female, with a rather large baby lying sideways in her belly. This image was taken from a 120 foot cherry picker to gain the right perspective.
