Now this is just typical of the stuff that happens to me these days…
So we’re flying out of Montreal last month after grandson Matteo’s baptism. I had like no problem with the window seat and I was really digging the view of the St. Lawrence River at dusk, feeling happy I had my camera in hand… when all of a sudden this skeletal vampire bat flies right up to my cabin window and looks me straight in the eye. Would have hit the frickin roof if my seat belt hadn’t been fastened !!
Having said that, it’s not the first time something skeletal has accompanied me out of Montreal. And probably won’t be the last neither :-)

Background: Canon EOS 5D Mk3, 24-105 L IS (yes, it is Montreal at dusk)
Bat skeleton: From my image “Dawn Execution” (he was happy to help on this :-)

Well, I never! I took all the trouble of transforming myself and flying several thousand feet up and this is what I get? LOL...your images blow my mind!

Looks like something from a Steven King novel - one that would give me nightmares.

The look of curiosity on its face is too funny The rest of the shot is amazing! Excellent!

I guess in the end he was as curous of me as I was of him :-) The eyes are actually from a portrait I did of my sister`s cat... just changed the color a bit and made them look... curous. Thanks for appreciating the finer points !!

You say that now Leka, but if it actually happened to you in mid flight… your seat would probably end up as wet as mine was :-)
