cette place où les ombres blanches

dérivent (le poids est une amertume)

tant d’émanations


la roussette à contre-jour

froide malgré la crise spasmodique


s’évanouissant entre les bois et les pierres

qui écrasent le silence

de l’insinuation il se jette de tout son saoul

en chantant de la syrinx

au creux du bruissement d’or

des scories et de la poudre de lave

avec les clés pour délivrer les essences


fresque d’hiver bientôt

oublié et le combat des premiers frissons

sur les bouquets d’aiguilles rien

n’est vraiment défini


le feu avance

son vertige seulement


je te prends par la main avec l’assiduité

du rhizome pendant que le fruit de tes yeux

écartent les voiles sans en avoir assez

rejetant les murs plus loin et plus loin encore

leurs plaintes rapaces étourdissant les mystères


tu entres avec les hésitations vacillantes

au bout d’un fil harmonique

ton aura persévère à la hauteur

d’ épaules des élytres prennent racine


des nuits blanches à espérer

seules des nuits à emprunter

les barques noires seulement

fièvre calme pendant que des nuages

de marbre pentélique glissent avant

de se teindre en vision sonore d’une caresse


quelque chose


se trame

ton organe vasculaire est débordé



il y a tant d’humidité dans ton esprit

tant de gouttes accumulées que les arbres

les retiennent l’air de rien

ces arbres indolores et les heures

indiscernables qui les entourent

elliptiques à leurs corps défendant

chairs d’heures.


le réel oublie qu’il est réel



dérives de l’insinuation

Combination of 5 images to create a fruit bat flying towards its feeding ground

@phoenix walk, SG

Dog faced fruit bats in Singapore.

this one was captured with fruit in mouth. As the bat was flying directly towards me with an airspeed of approx. 2.5m/s, the dof was insufficient to keep the subject in sharp focus throughout the flight path. I was using a 4hz, 4 frames setting for this. However, with this setup, I only managed to capture 3 images in a single frame.

This was the first time I successfully applied this technique (after several failed attempts) in capturing multiple images of a flying bat in a single frame. It's a little tricky but for me, the result is both fascinating and rewarding.

Just like us, they are mammals and the only one capable of natural flight.

Its spread-out membrane can be clearly seen this image.

Epomophorus gambianus

Senegambia HG - Banjul

The Gambia, Dec. 2008


The Senegambia Strip in Banjul is the most touristic place in The Gambia. A large concentration of white people can be found here because of the many banks, shops, restaurants and hotels.

Personally, I didn't like this 'African Benidorm' but there is one place which is an absolute highlight; The Sengambia Hotel Gardens. This beautiful garden is an oases in the crowded area and inhabits so many exotic plants and birds. Truly a must see!


We have visited these gardens several times because it was located quite near to our stay. One afternoon, I was taking some pictures from the birds in a beautiful sunset. Then right after dawn many fruit bats flew around and went to this fig tree. We were just lucky to be there at the right season for the figs I guess. It was just awesome to watch the bats flying on and off and eating these fruits...

fruit bats and flying foxes, Considered a menace but that doesn't stop them from being cute little flying puppy dogs!

Straw-coloured Fruit Bats travel in massive colonies of at least 100,000 bats and sometimes massing up to 1 million. Their necks and backs are a yellowish-brown colour, while their undersides are tawny olive or brownish. The average weight of these bats ranges from 8 to 12 oz (230 to 340 g) and the animals grow to 5.7 to 9 in (14 to 23 cm) in length, with wings spanning up to 30 in (76 cm).


This bat is seen approaching the very crowded roost site in the Atewa Forest in Ghana, west Africa.

Formation flying… The Straw-coloured Fruit Bat is the most widely distributed of all the African megabats. It is quite common throughout its area ranging from the southwestern Arabian Peninsula, across forest and savanna zones of sub-Saharan Africa.

Welcome to my Flickr 365 Project! I’m calling it my 365 Species Project, because for each day of the year, I will post a photo of a different species of organism... My goal was to accomplish all of this in 2013, but I soon found out that it was more daunting a task than I'd realized. Instead, my new goal is to get through 365 by the end of 2014, still an impressive average of a new species every other day for two years.


We're in the home stretch, now!!! It's December, which means I'm down to my last 31 days to get it all done in 2 years. Somewhat unfortunately, I'm getting slammed at the end of my first semester in graduate school, so the project has really dropped toward the bottom of the old priority list. Nonetheless, I'm going to do my best to get them all in under the wire. Excuse the massive posts!


Coogee, New South Wales, Australia

Flying off from the fruit after some bites


Inside the bat cage (not the batting cage). I was given the rare and fascinating experience of stepping into some of the bat cages at Cranbrook Institute of Science in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Just me, my camera, and 160 live bats. I didn't have much time but it was great to have the chance to document part of a great conservation movement. I'll post more pictures soon.

I spent about an hour avoiding guano to get a shot of the fruit bat in flight, quite tricky with a zoom lens. They were flying in between trees in the botanical gardens just outside kandy, sri lanka.

many were still hanging on trees, a few were agitating to take flight

African bat at Brevard Zoo, Florida. Very dark in their little bat cave - surprised these shots were even usable. (handheld, 1600, 1/35)

Currently there are thousands of these beautiful creatures living around the Macquarie River in Bathurst NSW
