SPECIAL MENTION: SATPAL SINGH – The Chase
SPECIAL MENTION: SATPAL SINGH – Bats are largely nocturnal and seeing them fly in broad daylight is unusual. Satpal Singh wrote to say: “Driving from the Ghaghra river toward Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh, I noticed a huge cloud of around 300 or 400 bats Pteropus giganteus that began to scatter in all directions. It was only when I zoomed in that I realised that the flying mammals were being chased by honey bees Apis species!” Eventually some of the bats settled on nearby trees with the bees hovering around.
