Naser, well done. Lov the composition and detail on the Bat. I have many Banana trees and shoot birds, bees, squirrels and ants all going for the blossoms. I tried flood lights and Better Beamers over the years but I have never seen a Bat (although we had many Fruit Bats that loved berries of a tree). Many thanks for posting. Tom

Just a superb capture, one that I assume is difficult to get. Congratulations. Greg

What a wonderful, perfectly framed, prize-worthy photograph of a rarely captured subject! Back in 1968, I had the privilege of accompanying wildlife photographer C. C. "Chuck" Allen on a few adventures in the Pacific Northwest. One night he lay on his stomach next to a pond for a good hour or longer trying to get a shot of the bats that were swooping in to drink on the fly. Despite his considerable patience and skill with camera and flash, we were heartbroken when the dozen rolls of chromes came back from Kodak all black - not a single bat in over 400 shots. I realize photographic and lighting technology has come a long way in the past 50+ years, but I am still stunned by the perfection of your picture and in total awe of your ability as an artist and photographer. Congratulations, Naser, and thank you for sharing your work with us. With admiration and kind regards, Mark Hubbard, Eureka, California

Like the others I am slack jawed by this beautiful image. It is something I would expect on the cover of National Geographic. CONGRATS
