Bat returns

This hanging Bat was disturbed by my activities below, near the tree's base and stared at me for quite a long time. This gave me ample time to capture it in my camera. The look in its eyes said : " Why bothering me?"

They sleep this do you sleep???
BhewwwOOOOOhAHaa!!! scary enough right??

Huge Banyan tree full of Bats "hanging-out" during day time. Seemed like all the bats of the entire city had cluttered onto this single tree.

No baby, dont eat my camera's lens, that's not edible!!

Ever used your wings to walk/creep?

I positioned the camera in front the bat's face and it started following the camera. I had keep up with the bat and move backward to capture the "expressions' of the creature!

It became violent for a mean while, tried to bite the lens of the camera!! It even hit against the camera's lens for a couple of times.

The grass was wet, watered with dew-drops which made it even more difficult for me to keep the camera at ground level

This baby bat fell down on the porch after gettin injured. I kept this creature in a box for the night and released it the next morning, and this was its reaction!!

    By day the bat is cousin to the mouse.
    He likes the attic of an aging house.

    His fingers make a hat about his head.
    His pulse beat is so slow we think him dead.

    He loops in crazy figures half the night
    Among the trees that face the corner light.

    But when he brushes up against a screen,
    We are afraid of what our eyes have seen:

    For something is amiss or out of place
    When mice with wings can wear a human face.

The Bat's skin was flooded with tiny insects and ants.

Tips for great Pictures!!

Look your subject in the eye

Direct eye contact can be as engaging in a picture as it is in real life. When taking a picture of someone, hold the camera at the person's eye level to unleash the power of those magnetic gazes and mesmerizing smiles. For children, that means stooping to their level. And your subject need not always stare at the camera. All by itself that eye level angle will create a personal and inviting feeling that pulls you into the picture.

Use a plain background

A plain background shows off the subject you are photographing. When you look through the camera viewfinder, force yourself to study the area surrounding your subject. Make sure no poles grow from the head of your favorite niece and that no cars seem to dangle from her ears.

Use flash outdoors

Bright sun can create unattractive deep facial shadows. Eliminate the shadows by using your flash to lighten the face. When taking people pictures on sunny days, turn your flash on. You may have a choice of fill-flash mode or full-flash mode. If the person is within five feet, use the fill-flash mode; beyond five feet, the full-power mode may be required. With a digital camera, use the picture display panel to review the results.
The flash will brighten up people's faces and make them stand out. Also take a picture without the flash, because the soft light of overcast days sometimes gives quite pleasing results by itself.

Auto focus problems

Sometimes the object for focus is too small compared to its background, for example you are trying to focus onto a single thin and tiny leaf, the camera may not be able to auto-focus on it. So place fist or any other object nearby the leaf and allow the camera to auto-focus at that position. Thereafter remove the object and click your shot!! I took snapped those red-ants on the orchids in a similar way.
