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)

 “don´t swim to far out.. there are big sharks out there”  the twins told me and smiled between them.

It was mostly a friendly joke. But I knew that six months earlier sharks had killed one french man and two weeks later an english tourist not very far from this beach.

I took a very good decision. I made a flight reservation southeast (for a change) and ended up on this special place south of the equator. The Seychelles.  The picture is from Beau Vallon beach at the island of Mahé.
