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: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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.
