A Bat with Her Baby
- as seen by -Deborah Albert
While on a photography trip to Darwin, Australia, I came upon a couple of large trees filled with little red flying foxes, also called fruit bats, roosting for the day.
They were a bit skittish and difficult to approach. Fortunately, I was able to get close enough to single out individuals and spot this mother nursing her baby. It took several pictures, but this was one came out best with her looking down at me.
