The Lesser Musky Fruit Bat or Ptenochirus minor is megabat species in the family Pteropodidae which is endemic to the Philippines. Taking photographs of bats can be very easy when they are roosting and one can really choose the proper exposure to get the best shots; while in flight, is totally a different story as they fly during the night.

We found this lovely flying mammal roosting, hanging from the rafters of the House of the Rustling Leaves of our dear friend Miguel David De Leon.
