Grey-headed Flying Fox (Pteropus poliocephalus)

The Grey-headed Flying Fox occurs primarily along the eastern coastal plain from Bundaberg in Queensland, through New South Wales and south to eastern Victoria.

This species is a canopy-feeding frugivore, blossom-eater and nectarivore of rainforests, open forests, woodlands, Melaleuca swamps and Banksia woodlands.

Grey-headed Flying Fox are relatively long-lived mammals, with the average age of reprodutive animals being six and 10 years.

Hello Chi,
Perfect timing. Excellent in sharpness, details and clear colours. Great composition.

Hi Chi,
A perfect capture of one of frugivourus bats in my dreams. Excellent sharp details. Splendid coloration. Blue BG nicely contrasted. Eye contact and POV wonderful.
I work on bats, I have already a nikename (ousettus). One of the biggest targets of mine to see and study on SE Asian and Australian fruit bats. My friend Fatih, who live in Autralia, posted to TN another great shot of same species again from Sydney. It must be relatively common there. As my old teacher, M. Atatür wrote, I am very glad to see it.
thanks for showing us. best wishes
