View Full Version : Flying Foxes hanging Out-fini

There bats are called flying foxes or fruit bats. They is a controversy going on here about them being primates rather than bats since they look a bit like lemurs. They are all over the place here and really eat the fruit in orchards.
This was hard to get everything sorted out on.....hope you like it http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

These fruit bats are terrific. The colours are great. I like the different textures of the fur and the smooth skin on the wings. I once rescued one that had been shot through the wing (we live in a fruit growing region). It was carrying a baby which we handed to Wires as the mother died overnight. Also saw them recently in the Botanic Gardens in Sydney - hundreds of them in the trees.

Sculpi, I like the composition and perspective of these bats. I also like the colours you have used. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Brilliant piece of art.

If we were all geniuses we wouldn't need each other----------would we?
