Bats of Chassahowitzka

Posted on

In 2007, a 14 year old Boy Scout from Brooksville created an Eagle Scout Project to build and install bat houses in the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area. Thanks to him and the staff from CWMA these houses are home to hundreds of bats!

Three early mornings are dedicated to photograph these amazing creatures of the night.

There is a 15 minute window of good light when the bats are returning to their roost, and gives us ample time to snap hundreds of photos!

Before going to the location, we will discuss shooting in manual, using your on-camera flash and also depending on the clarity of the night sky.. practice taking photos of the stars.

After the bat adventure… we will be heading to the trails for photo hike!
