Nice Bente, up to your rescue tricks again. Bats are very beneficial to us. I like this picture. As I stated somewhere else, brown and dark subjects are difficult to "come alive" on a photograph, because the colours are dull and it will never rival the red, yellow or blue as seen in birds or d'fies. hence, Some tend to glance over these beautiful creatures. I think your exposure here is VERY good, and it even has an experession. S, from him, to you, via me, thanks for the warmth!

Very nice research work. A welcome surprise, I imagine. Nice clear image, compliments the note. I trust that your nurturing kept this critter alive somewhere. (Good things happen to people who do good things)
Thanx for sharing
You were very lucky with this and what I find amazing with bats, is how soft their fur is. I could not resist a workshop on this (now that I know how to do it) I used edge finder to outline the bat and then I added a bit of brightness (+7) and contrast (+4) to the bat. - I hope you like it.
Now I have your fingerprints

Wow Bente, what an excellent job you have done here. I am also a lover of bats and unfortunately I have not been lucky enough to obtain a capture of this magnitude!
Congratulations on such a fine catch!

Personal assessment of the photo: great and unique.
Good visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: more than complete and very interesting.
Thank you very much, Bente.
Very interesting subject, Bente, that you've nailed very well despite it's color and the strong contrast with your hand. I found a common one here two weeks ago, falling on the yard from the back of a shutter. It was asleep, I guess (daytime). I didn't had the time to fetch the camera, it flew away within the first minutes. As a defence reflex, while it was on the ground, it was showing it's tiny sharp teeth. Quite impressive. Thanks for sharing your experience and this instructive shot.
