All black with a beautiful rust mantle. Really big!!
This huge roost covered many, many trees in Centennial Park, in Sydney, NSW. I tried to get some good photos of them leaving their roosts in the city trees in Hyde Park and other places at dusk but no success. I confess to finding them really cool, but might not like them roosting in my trees every day.
Warm summer evenings, fruit bats starting to chatter and swirl, this is one of my happy memories of strolling around Sydney.
