The crew was busy setting up a wonderful lunch in this permanent shelter set up in the rain forest, while the guides and the rest of us were outside looking for bugs, frogs and other wildlife.  Several bats were discovered just outside the shelter, and we took turns trying to take a shot.  This one flew off from its original hiding place, and landed on a tree near me - I was only able to get a single shot, since the flash spooked it, and it immediately took off.  Fortunately, it was in focus!
