You're not kidding. I stood on a chair and at first I was very hesitant to get that close. I physically couldn't get any closer, my lens was literally inches from its face. what also entered my mind was the high percentage of rabies in bats. The only known survivor of rabies lives a few hours from me. So that entered my mind as well. LOL It's just that opportunities like this don't present themselves very often. I'm a firm believer that you must seize the moment. after showing a lot of people this photograph they all thought i was nuts. lol Hey. What can I say, my feet are my zoom.
