My first attempt at night bat photography.  7D2, 24-105mm@55mm, F4, 1.6 seconds, ISO 1600, High Speed sync on flash.  AI Denoise, tripod.  Thanks for any comments or suggestions, Dave

A sliver more separation between bat and blossom would be better - but everything else looks pretty good!

Wow! What an incredible shot. I love the background so dark that it really brings out the flower and the bat.

Excellent first try. Really nice light and focus. Maybe a little more bat and less flower next time, if possible? Having said that, I realize how difficult this must be to get at all. Bravo!
