On our island resort we were literally going bat-ty! Hanging in the trees on cliffs high above our beach cottage live thousands of fruit bats. While they mostly sleep during the day and feed at night, they will periodically fly around like a swarm of giant bees and eventually return to their roosts. These are large bats with wingspans over two feet. Quite a sight and sound!

Location: Club Paradise, Palawan Province, Philippines
