The other night I went to Lake Las Vegas to take photo's of the Harvest moon. This is a corridor I was waiting in for the moon to come up. Never mind that bats chased myself and another couple out when it got dark! :) Picture me another girl and a man waving a hat running through this building!! Ha ha

Very unusual behavour for bats, I would say. They must have got tired of humans chasing them. HAHA! And what a sight it must have been :0)
And on top of that adventure you got this fantastic image, Tammy. Well done!!

Thanks everyone! Oh I knew we had bats in Vegas Candice and I have never liked them. Usually see them up by the street lights. I kept telling the other couple, they only want bugs, they are after the bugs..hahahaha

Six million freetail bats live under the Congress Avenue Bridge in Austin...C'mon down, Tammy!! :) This is a gorgeous place for bats to lurk in the shadows just waiting for unsuspecting passerbys...looks like a scene from a Mediterranean country...much better than the Congress Avenue Bridge! Super capture, Tammy!

Tammy- Ok City, now that I have stopped laughting from reading your story, I can comment on the picture. Personally I think this one deserves the gold. I just love the pov of the shot, how you got back a bit, really highlighted the beautiful arches, then as we look through them, the colors and shapes of the buildings, then the mountains behind them, then that viviv blue sky. Gorgeous dimentions and the finish is gorgeous. Stunning work my friend.
Have a wonderful day and enjoy. Be you.

Patricia, they weren't coming after us. It was just dusk and they were waking up and chasing bugs. If you ever watch them do that they are flying all over the place and every which way :) Just seems like they are chasing you~ Hee

Every month, with our camera in hand, we go out and find what we hope will be the “winning photo.”
Those of us that don’t get recognized, just continue to search for that special image, until one day the Congratulations come pouring in from some of the best artist and friends anyone could image.
So to the Better Photo winners for the month of September, I congratulate you on a job so well done.
My very best to all of you, Merna Nobile
