Bats & Squirrels in Flight
Following on from photographing birds in flight other animals such as bats and flying squirrels became the next target. Both of these animals needed baiting or finding a regular location where they occurred to make it all possible. Bats can often be attracted to moths coming to a ultra-violet lamp during the night and flying squirrels are attracted like a magnet to peanut butter. Positioning the bait to attract the animal to fly in front of the camera and detecting by simple light beams can produce startling results.
