English: Philippine bat Own work, self-made. Out of 17,000 shots of my Nikon and Sony cameras without using speed lights and shutter, but just night portrait with simple flash, I successfully caught the flying of a nocturnal creature bat above our Aratiles tree Bat [3]The megabat, contrary to its name, is not always large: the smallest species is 6 cm (2.4 in) long and thus smaller than some microbats.[1] The largest reach 40 centimetres (16 in) in length[citation needed] and attain a wingspan of 1.7 m (5.6 ft), weighing in at up to 1.6 kg (3.5 lb). Most fruit bats have large eyes, allowing them to orient visually in the twilight of dusk and inside caves and forests.
