Fox Bats in Melbourne 

This 7 by 10 inch watercolor was painted from a photograph I took in the botanical gardens in Melbourne, Australia. The grey-headed fox bat colony has grown large enough to be injurious to the trees in the garden. There was a big debate as to what to do about it. These bats have a wing spread of a little over three feet.
