John Dyer Painting. Sunset Bats, Mulu, Borneo

"The bat exodus from the limestone caves of Mulu in the rainforest of Borneo is one of the world's great spectacles. It is an extraordinary sight with the sky turning orange as the sun sets, 3 million wrinkle nosed bats streaming across the sky in swirling patterns and bat hawks in hot pursuit! Tropical butterflies and the calls of hornbills complete this magical event." John Dyer.
