Ryukyu Flying Fox

Pteropus dasymallus inopinatus, is the scientific name for the huge bats on Okinawa. My last night there I decided I'd try and photograph one or two. It wasn't easy but I did manage to get a couple of pictures. One is pretty good the other is ok...they fly fast and you can't hear them coming...they're spooky too.

Here is my first shot...as usual I didn't see him coming.

This was my second attempt...this little guy nearly made me jump out if my skin...he kind of snuck up on me.

Well that's all of them. I did try to get more but these guys wouldn't cooperate.

Later
