Fruit eating bat, Artibeus sp., probably a Great Fruit-eating Bat (Artibeus lituratus). Grenada W. I.

cette place où les ombres blanches

dérivent (le poids est une amertume)

tant d’émanations

végétatives

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

fluide

quelque chose

 

se trame

ton organe vasculaire est débordé

muettement

 

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

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

Dog faced fruit bats in Singapore.

captured in the flight path on their way to feed on fruits

@phoenix walk, SG

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.

This species is the most commonly seen in sg, also the easiest to shoot.

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.

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...

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.

 

These bats were seen at their roost site in the Atewa Forest in Ghana, west 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!

Took this from the balcony of my hotel room. These Spectacled Flying Foxes really impressed us. There were thousands making the nightly trip between their daytime colony and their nighttime roost on a nearby island.

They spend their day sleeping in the trees and at dusk wake up and take off for a night of feeding

 

Flying-foxes are the largest of Australia’s bats

Flying-foxes are important pollinators and seed dispersers

Large numbers are essential for forest pollination and seed dispersal

Females have one pup each year

Also called fruit bats
