Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

This week’s photo challenge is: Nighttime. The time when unseen things flutter, and when unexpected guests arrive. It can be a time for mystery or grandeur, terror or pleasure, revilement or fascination. Here are my impressions of nighttime.

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    Great shots there Eric. LOL I love the “he’s inside the house” one. Bats are amazing creatures to watch flying in the twilight or night sky. Nearly everyone in our neighbourhood has palm trees. The bats love to land in them and feast on the fruit. You can go outside at night and shine a torch into the palm fronds and sure enough, there’ll be a bat just hanging around 🙂

      Oh that’s so cool. You get the giants, the Fruit Bats. I’ve only seen them in cages. Would love to see one in the wild. These Free-Tails have a wingspan of 6 inches. Tiny things. It was cool to see them emerging from their cave. An Owl was nearby, collecting them for his dinner. It was quite the spectacle.

      Some day I’d like to see your Fruit Bats up close. That would be awesome. 🙂
