This shot of a Flying Fox (Fruit Bat) was especially difficult to take.
framing it in total darkness was just one of the challenges ,
the other was focusing and getting the exposure right.
i prefocused at a certain distance and waited for it to come near,
the rest was upto pure luck.

we soon learned that there is no need to go to exotic places
to take good photographs
also no need for expensive equipment,
this photograph was shot with a 70-300mm zoom lens
(costing INR 5K i.e. ~ 125 $)
