A real challenge for shooting yesterday.  As the sun set on an overcast evening, I took a walk around the lake.  I could have done with more of everything for this - more focal length, wider aperture, more sensitivity or just more light!  However, all I had was a Fuji X-E3 and 55-200 zoom (f/3.5-4.8), so getting a few usable shots was satisfying.  Shutter speeds of 1/250 - 1/500 sec at sunset is a bit crazy and I ended up at ISO 6,400-10,000.

I think these are probably Grey-headed Flying-fox (Pteropus poliocephalus).

 

I did think accompanying these with a few batman jokes but in the end I didn't think they were good enough.
