Instead of being attracted to it’s balls.
Try focusing on it’s eyes.
The eyes are freaky! How big is this bat… I see the watermelon rind and depending on the size of that.. I would say this is a very large bat. Male, of course.
Really freaky eyes!!
Was the bat as big as he look likes?
It’s a huge bat. Is that what you call a flying fox? Great shot.
Wow, that’s an incredible photograph of the bat.
Spooky! I’m freaked out by the way he’s gnawing on whatever that is (fruit?). I didn’t even see his eyes until I read your instructions!
This shot is fantastic 🙂
My compliments (@^.^@)
That is just strange on so many levels! Great photo though.
Fantastic shot!!!! It’s a really disturbing, yet beautiful picture. And yes, no doubt we’re talking about a boy here… 🙂
What some guys will do to enjoy their watermelon!
Wow that’s a huge bat. So long no visit your blog. Hope you have a great time during the school holidays with your kids.
Yikes…is that what I think it is?? lol…Happy WW:)
I’m hoping that’s a strawberry guava rind rather than a watermelon, or at least a personal sized melon, ortherwise that bats the size f a small dog, Luckily it likes fruit as long as I’m not eating any an the vicinity. Wouldn’t want to wrangle with it over slice of watermelong that’s for sure LOL Wonder what the wingspread is. Yikes!
Ok I just read up on fruit bats, the smallest of wing spans of 6 inches the largest have wing spans of up to 6 feet, and though they fly OK, they tpretty much crashland by grabbing what ever they can that is handy. I definatly will rethink eating watermelon out of doors in fruitbat territory after dark should the occasion ever arise!
I admit, I fixated on the balls – that is definitely one male bat!
that is so awesome! a real live bat, eating fruit. Here’s my WW hope you can stop by!
it’s beautiful in a freaky way:)… and yeah, i noticed the balls first, but then, it’s not everyday we see a bat’s intimate parts:)…
Fantastic shot! Those eyes are freaky.
Okay, I guess that answers the question I had. I’ve never been flashed by a fruit bat before.
Freaky… and more than a little creepy on several levels!
Way more up close and personal than I ever thought I would see a bat! They are such scary looking creatures!!
WHOA! I’ve not seen a bat this close… Freaky eyes indeed… and I didn’t know it has balls 😉
I have almost the same photo, went to the zoo twice last week, courtesy of my son’s free corporate membership from his company!
*chuckled all the way until the comment box* Ugh, that\’s one freaky bat! I\’m so glad that I only had some encounters with the tiny ones. Great shot! Have a wonderful day, Elaine 🙂
