Flying Fox / Fruit Bat (狐蝠) ~ Pteropus vampyrus

Drop by my Facebook Page for the latest. Due to heavy time constraints, I’ve minimised all activities here but should you be interested, I’ve relegated most photographs to my Sets. I am currently refining my passion in the invisible spectrum (UV-VIS-NIR) while at the same time exploring the basics and challenge of wide-field astrophotography with a DSLR in a light polluted city.

Have a great life ahead!

[the boring bits] This is the Flying Fox / Fruit Bat (狐蝠) ~ Pteropus vampyrus. It's obviously not in the open per se but in a huge enclosure of my local nature park. In keeping with its natural habitat, the environment was rather dark (forested). As such, I have to use a high ISO to maintain an ideal shutter speed to "render" some motion to the wings [panning].
