The giant Flying Fox (or Fruit bat) has a wing span of up to 5 feet (1.5m). Now it has got the doubtful reputation of being the cause of the current Ebola epidemic in West Africa. This particular portrait I took in the Seychelles where you see them fly everywhere also in plain daylight. (I flipped the pic upside down)

The sound of drums echoing on top of the Caramujo mountain on Sao Nicolau Island in Cape Verde. Once a year the locals from Ribeira Brava area climb the mountain to honour the spirit.
Eating, drinking, dancing and playing the drums is on the menu!!   June 8
