Flying Fox / Fruit Bat (狐蝠) ~ Pteropus vampyrus

Drop by my Facebook Page www.facebook.com/yewyuee 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].
