    Photographing Bats -- The Flying Kind


    After noticing the beautiful bats flying close to his garden pond at night Kim began wondering how he could capture the moment they drank from the pool.

    Travelling at 20mph, with wing beats not visible to the human eye and flying mostly at night the bats are notoriously difficult to photograph.

    Well, he figured it out. The site has a couple phenomenal pix of bats in flight while drinking at his pond. Also includes a diagram showing how he did it.

    The photographer's hard work in designing his setup paid off in phenomenal photos.
