Every evening I have bats flying around my pond. I have tried on several occasions to capture them on film. I only use my phone. Any ideas on settings as the bats only appear after it is too dark to see them on the picture. They are rather small and not like the Flying Monkeys from the wizard of Oz.
Only two sunset pics on my phone at the moment.
1) Downtown New Orleans with a view of the Mississippi River bridge
2) The sky was beautiful so I took this photo from the gate while leaving Dallas last month:
Here's a sunrise...
You can bring bats down closer (I've had them fly right by my ears). Find a few pebbles about the size of your thumb nail and have someone toss them into the air in front of a flying bat. The bat will think that the pebble is a insect and follow it down (not to the ground but to ear level). It's a way to get a close up look of flying bats.
My uncles used to tell stories about back in the 30's. They would take foil and wrap fishing weights with hooks all together. Then throw them up around the street lights. The bats would get tangled and drop right onto the sidewalk. Stomp them with their shoe and do it again.
These bats come real close to me, I just can't get them to show in the shots.
