Horseshoe Bat I was accustomed seeing common &#039;fruit bats&#039; a.k.a. &#039;Flying fox&#039; of the city.. And ALWAYS wanted to see these small &amp; truly scary( to girls &amp; some guys :-p ) Bats.<br />
But on my trek to &#039;Harishchandragad&#039; i was lucky enough to see &amp; photograph this beautiful &#039;Blythe&#039;s&#039; horseshoe bat&#039;.<br />
All thanks to my Friend &#039;Pravin&#039; who spotted this.<br />
Am very sorry that i couldn&#039;t click its face because it was resting in very tiny crevices. <br />
My friend assisted me with the torch &amp; help me record this on my cam.<br />

Horseshoe Bat

I was accustomed seeing common 'fruit bats' a.k.a. 'Flying fox' of the city.. And ALWAYS wanted to see these small & truly scary( to girls & some guys :-p ) Bats.
But on my trek to 'Harishchandragad' i was lucky enough to see & photograph this beautiful 'Blythe's' horseshoe bat'.
All thanks to my Friend 'Pravin' who spotted this.
