The Flying Fox  

Nature's flexible wing, the Flying Fox or Fruit Bat

A quote by Drew Taylor on the A.B.C. website

"Sitting in my little dingy on the Fitzroy River watching the bats scoop the water for a drink and hearing the loud snaps of Freshwater Crocs as they tried (and some times successfully) jumping out for a feed, I couldn't believe my luck when I managed to get this shot"

"I was like a little boy jumping around in my boat after seeing the digital image on the screen. Take note of all the crocs sitting in the water waiting for their moment of chance"
