Bazooka’s First Bats

As the dusk turned to darkness, bats fluttered around, buzzing by me with their quick, erratic flight patterns. I tried my best to focus on their silhouettes and capture their erratic movements. These are the results of Bazooka’s (my large 400mm lens) first bats.

  1. Are the bats already out and awake? In this part of the world they appear normally much later. But just to be sure, I’m going to see if I can spot one this evening…

    • Hi Herman. This week is the first time I’ve seen them. There has been a lot of gnats swarming, so there’s a lot for the bats to eat.

  2. Thank you Timothy for your lovely Valentine’s Day card 😍. I just saw her and she is very beautiful. The ecard was lost in my emails. It touched me a lot and I sent you an answer on your mailbox. Kisses Timothy and your cute cats 😘😻

      • I got the DO lens which is a 400mm ƒ/4.0 lens fit into a 300mm ƒ/2.8 lens body, because it only weighs only 4 pounds as compared the 11 pounds for a 400mm ƒ/2.8 and almost 7 pounds for a 300mm ƒ/2.8. That makes it very handlable. I’m sacrificing speed for lighter weight, but I think it’s well worth it.

  3. Great shots, Tim, bats are nearly impossible to photograph! We have a few that we see every evening, I wish I could follow them and see where they “hang out”! 🦇

    • Thanks, Tiffany. Bats are really good at hanging out too. Does anyone have bat houses in your neighborhood? People have put up bat houses around here.

      • I have no idea. Out of the 10 years I’ve been blogging, I’ve never been on a blogging forum. What are you looking for in a forum?

      • Have your search for WordPress forums? I’ve never been interested in forums, so I wouldn’t know what’s out there. You can search topics you are interested in, visit blogs that engage in those topics, comment on content you like and that is relevant to what you want to discuss. I’m sure those bloggers will be willing to discuss whatever interests you.

    • Hi Julie. I hadn’t imagined how much I would use that lens. It’s really great.
