Win­ner Threat­ened Species

Australian Geographic - - Snapshot - El­iz­a­beth How­ell, New South Wales

These grey-headed fly­ing-foxes can be seen skim­ming the wa­ter in or­der to lick the wa­ter from their chests, mainly when it hasn’t rained for some time or in ex­treme tem­per­a­tures. They are fas­ci­nat­ing crea­tures. This photo was taken at the bat camp on the Par­ra­matta River in Par­ra­matta. Par­ra­matta River, Par­ra­matta, New South Wales Nikon D500, 200–500mm at 500mm, 1/1250, f/7.1, ISO 720
