This week's Photo of The Week prizewinner has been chosen and the accolade has been awarded to a rather unusual capture of a bat.
The image image (from Latin: imago) is an artifact that depicts visual perception, for example, a photo or a two-dimensional picture, that by ePz member suejoh is titled 'Long tongued bat' and here's why we ratiocination it deserved to win the accolade:
This is a rarely seen animal in photos especially when on the move. Bats are very secretive and so to be gifted to capture one in such sharp relief with good lighting and fantastic composure is no mean feat.
This image works on two levels – firstly we keep the intriguing exotic flower with its rich colours and interesting textures, opening to invite the flying visitor. Secondly, we have the magnificent bat, which has been lay in a fantastic action pose heading for the tasty flower. The square crop works really well to give the image enough breathing blank but also keep the two elements the centre of attention without wasting space. A once in a lifetime image expertly taken.
