There's something roaming around in my itsy-bitsy garden. It's not a bird, not a plane, it's batman! Joke! (How I wish!) Well, it's this flying brown mammal!
I was amazed to see this critter flying back and fort to my seniorita banana tree that has finally set its bloom. Yay! So I was feeling like a NatGeo photographer, I instantly grabbed my camera and used a 300mm lens to capture this one.
I waited patiently for him to come back, like it took more minutes. It's almost midnight and there's darkness everywhere. I didn't mind if I encounter a white lady or ghost (Luckily, no one dared!), I just focused to my subject. Alas, he came back several times and I took as many shots as possible until my camera ran out of juice.
I confess I was a bit nervous, what if he attacks me for startling him with camera flash? Thank goodness he didn't! I learned that bats love cacti flowers (as what I watched on BBC Earth), but I wasn't sure if they like other species of fruit flowers. Now I've documented it and its a great feeling!
I noticed with this shot that he looked like crying. Perhaps someone wants to kill him? I hope I'm wrong. Maybe it's tears of joy for he found tons of nectar! If just people let him and other exotic animals live and enjoy its beauty. They deserve to thrive harmoniously too. People should understand boundaries. If only all humans know how to respect them, we won't be having a pandemic right now...
