Hola Luis,
well discovered and captured. The point of view is superb showing the small creatures obviously looking at you. Their facial expression is nicely shown.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Luis,
It's quite an unusual and an extremely beautiful photo... The pose you captured, composition, colors and your POV are very good. Well done and TFS
Have a nice weekend

Hi Luis
Very good picture. Well composed and exposed. The objects of it are also interesting.
Nice colours as well.
Thanks for sharing

Hi Luis,
what a fascinating looking photo is this one.Five little bats and all of them are well focused giving very good detail.Most people would not think of them as adorable looking but this photo makes them appear that way to me.I like bats anyway because they eat very many harmful insects and rarely ever are a problem for we people.I have had a look at some of your photos and I must say they sure are very well done and interesting.Thanks. Bob

Hi Luis,
All in focus and the best part is that they are all looking at you or atleast it seems that they are all looking at you. very unusual photograph.

What a very nice shot , with nice composition .
with best wishes

Hello Luis,

This is a wonderful photo, in my opinion. First, the subjects are attractive, little beasts, and I really like the way the bats are grouped. You have nice detail and exposure, showing some animals that are probably not seen very often at this range.
