Not sure where you are located, but if in UK please bear in mind that bats are a protected species and I believe that you should ahve a licence to photograph them.

Having said that, it helps if you can a find a route or corridor they use regularily and can measure the disatnce they will be away from you when you fire the camera.

Short duration flash is important - probably manual mode on flasha nd down at low power. You will need to pre focus the lens - unlikely that auto focus will be quick enough!

May even be worth a tripod and rmeote release.

Good luck.
