It all starts with a photograph
Every year this little Lesser Long Eared bat visits our front door area (well I am only guessing it is the same one!)
This year is the first time I have been able to photograph him/her without it flying off and wouldn’t you know it, it was on the night of returning from Ballarat after the theft of my great lens and speedlight flash, that I use for wildlife close-ups.
The bat stayed still while I shot lots of pics trying to get a good one, using totally inappropriate lenses, but this shot is not too bad. I am happy with it anyway!
