    Default The bat posture

    ID: ID help appreciated

    A gross looking beauty that I came across which had its body resemble some rotten waste. On close observation the rotten lump seemed to move a bit making me curious to check it. It seemed to have caught onto some dried twig to even heighten the amount of camouflage, which almost successfully fooled me. Eventually, probably detecting my presence, it moved underneath the leaf, onto which it had set the series of web. After a moment it seemed to completely set onto this, upside down, posture and rested for long, probably until it felt safe.

    EXIF:
    Canon 550D
    Canon 100mm macro + Raynox DCR 250
    F/20
    Shutterspeed 1/200
    Tripod mounted, external flash fired + reflector(used a handy note book)

    Good details. The whitish glow at the bottom is due to the flash? Its very interesting to see these species. Thanks for sharing.

    Actually the flash was on the top, since it was under the leaf, I had to improvise and utilize my handy notebook to work as reflector
