Tripping the flight fantastic: Stunning images show agile bats hunting moths and drinking from pond

These amazing shots capture the moment a Western bat glides silently in pursuit of prey with delicate wings outstretched and its small mouth gaping open.

Translated from Dutch news agency ANP:

The numbers of greater mouse-eared bats, Myotis daubentonii and Myotis dasycmene grew moderately.
