Bats over the Domain

Bats are probably not what a north american tourist would first associate with Sydney, but they are out in force on summer evenings in the city. They're quite large, with an average wingspan of almost 1 meter.

 

These beautiful bats, better known as Grey Headed Flying Foxes, are sadly endangered despite their seemingly large numbers in the Sydney area.
