I don’t think I mentioned Bats from last weekends visit to Bahla Fort 🙂
What with the talk of Jinns and getting a little lost; there were a great number of bats, especially in the darker corners of the fort. A feeling of Transylvania about the place…..
I was determined to get a picture of one, but easier said than done ! So excuse the quality, it is a miracle of Nikon that I got one at all. The body size was about 10cm and the room needed to be dark for them to land, otherwise they were zipping round getting excited about being disturbed.
So how did I manage this image without giving them more stress?
Camera set on Auto exposure, Aperture-priority AE, 1/60 sec, f/8, ISO 200 with built-in flash set very low & using my Tokina 35-70 f2.8 lens. I stood in the room until my eyes adjusted (zone focused my lens) then waited.
