 Flying Fox: Balancing Act... by Ofer Levy


This amazing photo of a Grey-headed Flying Fox titled Balance Act .... was taken by Ofer Levy and is timed perfectly to show the bat as it disturbs the water. Ofer describes the photo as "This was captured while performing a “belly dipping” which is how they drink. After skimming the water while they lick the water absorbed in their fur. This is usually done at dusk and night but on very hot days when the temperature reaches around 40 degrees they drink during the day."
