Fruit bats

There are several species of fruit bat that it could be, but the Egyptian looks most likely for size and location. Fruit bat have big eyes and tend to be active in daylight

Hi Bob,

I didn't. The bats were directly above me and that's the angle the picture came out.

Love the photo, especially the little one. They do look as if they might be ready to dive off the branch.
