How do you count 1000 bats? One, two, damn it hold still. One, two, will you guys stop moving around...

Usual method is to count in 10s or 5s, as they leave the colony at night. Conveniently, in my photo there are 5! It takes about 30 minutes for them all to leave which makes it easier.

Special treat today. Local wetlands has been drained in preparation for excavators to remove sediment from the ponds. So what do the eels do without water? Dig themselves into the mud. Unfortunately for them the Red-bellied black snakes also dig themselves into the mud and feast on the eels.

The red bellies are beautiful snakes.

less so than other Australian snakes. There is a misconception that because they are red bellied (red for danger) they are a real threat, but not so, although their bite would put you down. Before I knew about them not being as aggressive as most, I had one climb up my paddle, whilst at rest, fishing from a canoe.............I nearly left the canoe to the snake, but it just sat sunning itself on the bow for about 3 minutes, then slithered back into the water. Apparently they are very good swimmers but I was in the middle of a lake over a kilometre wide so I guess it was just out of puff. I don't paddle now but to those who do, I would always say, rest your paddles horizontal across the gunnels and never leave one in the water whilst at rest.

Yes, you'll need to go get antivenom at hospital if bitten but they are not aggressive. You just keep your distance.

The (approximate) stats are very easy to remember. 50% of bite victims seek medical help and of those 50% still experience symptoms after 3 days.
I like to think of them as slightly worse than treading on a rusty nail. I trod on a tooth pick a week ago, big toe was a bit sore for a few days...

The show continued today. Lower snake is not aware there is another snake above it. A moment later it did and there was a very brief bit of action.

The lower snake catapulted itself across the creek giving me a much closer view.

The bats in Dave's pictures (fruit bats or flying foxes) were also once food for Aboriginal people in Australia—they are quite large for bats—but they don't live in caves. They spend their days in huge colonies in rainforest patches (or sometimes lush gardens) and set off at sundown in their tens of thousands to forage for fruit. It's an amazing sight seeing them head off.

We ate fruit bats in Indonesia...the ones we caught were in a cave, but I've seen the photos of the ones in Australia... and Indonesia is just a bit north of there. I suspect they can roost most anywhere.

I do for sure.. not for the camouflage but for some armour against the bush and the critters chewing on my stuff. mostly I wear camo to hide from other photogs. the critters can see me no matter what I wear.

Ya I know 400mm is over kill... I wear Lens Coat
