The amazing shots were taken after months of painstaking planning by Kim Taylor. This is thought to be a brown long-eared bat

Amazing shots of bats at a pond Bat1

After noticing the beautiful bats flying close to his garden pond at night Kim
began wondering how he could capture the moment they drank from the pool.
Travelling at 20mph, with wing beats not visible to the human eye and flying mostly at night the bats are notoriously difficult to photograph.

They are also no bigger than a human hand and weigh less than half an ounce.
Kim, 76, rigged ropes across the pond which encouraged the bats to drink from a certain point. Then, using special sensors designed by himself, he managed to get the perfect shots.

'These photos were taken with a digital camera using a device that listens for the ultrasonic squeaks.
'An infrared beam was then set to trigger flash lamps whenever a bat dipped down to scoop up a mouthful of water.

Awesome, stunning and amazing.
This is a great shot, what matter if this old but a very good attempt. I'm not a good photographer but I like these type of photos.
