SkyWatch Friday - Just Hang'in Out in Australia

On my 2nd home exchange to Australia in May 2009 I joined up with the Bushwalkers Club and took a hike through the Australian Rainforest.  Above our heads I could hear this crazy screeching and asked "What kind of bird is that?"

"Look up, Debbie.  Way up in the tops of the trees, towards the sky", someone said to me.  Holy smoly.....bats!!!  This picture doesn't do these guys justice.  They were HUGE!!!

How many bats do you see?

Keep looking towards the sky, you never know what you might see.  And if you like looking up, make sure and stop by "SkyWatch Friday" and see what else is "Up".


  1. I wish I was "hanging out" somewhere in Australia. I loved it there and wish I could go back. I envy you getting to travel so much. Nice shot.

  2. Oh My Goodness.... We have bats here --and every once in awhile, one will 'nap' on the top of our front porch. I have a picture somewhere.

    Where in Australia were you? I have some great blog friends in Brisbane.


  3. Your picture certainly gives new meaning to the term 'hanging out'. I think I see two bats in the picture. Thanks for sharing this, and have a wonderful weekend.

  4. There are two anyway. A food staple for many around the world.

  11. Hi Debbie - When I was in Queensland many years ago, I saw HUGE bats. They're called "flying foxes" and they are happy to hang on lower branches of trees, too.
