I've been hearing these flying foxes with their usual squabble at night in our banksia trees (feeding on nectar) so I decided to take torch & camera out to get a photo of one. All had gone quiet when I went out (might have been disturbed by the neighbour's flood light) but this one was still hanging around for me. It was probably blinded by the torch light for a while afterwards too (sorry little mate).
They are a protected species & necessary for pollination of varies trees.
