An adult grey-headed flying fox returns to its roost amidst the golden skies as the sun rises. Tired from the night's adventures, it flies heavily as it glides between the eucalyptus branches. As it passes through the trees, it attentively searches for a vacant spot to land as it screeches to celebrate the day's beginning.
The photo was taken during a yearly Australian wildlife phenomenon where fruit bats gather in a large colony known as "summer camps." Here, these bats breed, fight each other, feed and raise their young.
