Camera Critter #75

Not long ago, I got an email from a woman who works for the Agentschap voor Natuur en Bos (Nature and Forest Agency) in Belgium. She was asking if she could use a photo of mine in a planned exhibition regarding bats.

The exhibition is planned for early next year in Brussels, Belgium. For the showing, they require a file capable of printing at A3 size, or about 16x20 inches. I was glad to supply the agency the file, as at the same time, my father took ill and was being treated in a hospital in Brussels. He is home now and feeling fine, and my way of saying thanks to the good people of Belgium was to provide them the image.

So, if you're in Brussels, Belgium in early 2010 and hear about an exhibition developed for a program called, "Bat Action," drop by and check out my image being shown. If you want to know which images is being used, here it is.

Misty Dawn's Camera Critter Meme is a great way to see critters of all types. Go to the Meme homepage here and check out more entries. Then join the fun and let the world see your critters!

How wonderful! Not only to be asked but for you to supply them this photo as a way of thanking the people of Belgium for their good care of your Father. I am so glad he is doing well and my continued good wishes for his speedy recovery. Your photo is an amazing image. Thank you for sharing it along with this very interesting post.

For me bats are one very interesting critter...their wings are so soft and subtle!! We used to study them way back in time...during High School Biology Class.

Excellent photo.


Mine is posted now...it's a 'MAN OF WAR'. Creepy, slimy, icky.

Have a fabulous Saturday.

What an amazing shot of so many bats. We have bats here, but you rarely see one...I've only seen two in my lifetime. Great capture!
