Flying Foxes

Simon's mom took me to the nature reserve in Wingham and we walked through the bush to see the flying foxes. They are the biggest bats I have ever seen. The above picture is of the massive fig tree that greets you as you walk into the reserve.

Here are three full grown bats sleeping in the fig trees. The older ones perch higher up and are much less noisy than the young bats.

Tons of juvinile bats perched in the trees. These guys were so close to us you can hear their wings flap and they nock down leaves they are moving so much. There were hundreds in the trees around us. A bit creepy as you walk through the bush and relize that you are surrounded by bats. They're above you, next to you and some are even flying infront of you.
