Fruit Bat

It pays us a visit every night. The ceiling hook in our balcony is its favourite perch. I see plenty of these in HSR layout and Karthik Nagar.


I think it's a Lesser Short-nosed Fruit Bat:


These bats are megabats and unlike microbats they don't use echo location.


1/8s at 200mm, handheld, without IS. This is the best I could get in about 30 shots.
