Today's ABC Open photos

Flying Fox Colony at Wingham Brush Reserve
By Nilmini De Silva ·  · From Pic of the Week
My partner and I have lived and worked out of a motorhome for more than 18 months and are always on the lookout for free camp sites.  We were excited to discover the Wingham Brush Reserve a few days ago. Not only does it provide free camping for self contained vehicles, it also has a fascinating reserve next door to explore. We had watched the flying foxes leave in their hundreds the night before and enjoyed a closer encounter in the morning. They were perched very high in the trees but I had fun photographing them with my 100-400mm lens. Flying foxes have had a mixed reputation in Australia but they play an important role in our ecosystem in helping to pollinate native plants. While most people consider them a nuisance, they would rather feast on native blossoms before they attacked your fruit trees. I loved this little guy, fast asleep on his perch, quite oblivious to my presence!      Published 01 Mar 2017.  Wingham NSW 2429
