Spinning Flying-foxes

2011-11-30_23-49-42_400

According to a sign in the park, the population of flying-foxes in the garden has grown to 23,000. In this tree, Arthur counts at least 45 bats. Flying-foxes give birth to a single pup in October, which means this little one is likely about two months old. The bats are mostly napping but a few are starting to stretch and wake-up and fly around the garden.
