Hi Faith,
A GREAT SHOT! Excellent details and focus. Great colours too.


Hi Fatih,
Excellent capture. Good details and exposure.


Nice one! Mid flight. Absolutely gorgeous.

Hello Fatih
This is so unique to capture a bat flying overhead. He's prehistoric looking with his wings out like that. I love how you can see the detail of his wings including his feet and arms. Awesome!
