Bats in Deschutes National Forest near Pine Creek in Oregon, US

The nocturnal creatures eat anything from beetles and centipedes to small fish and even frogs. Due to their secretive nature, humans rarely see bats up close 

Each image was taken using lasers which trigger a high-speed shutter

Each image was taken in the late hours between 11pm and 2am by Durham, 49, who patiently waits for the creatures to appear – ready to snap them with lasers which trigger a high-speed shutter.

He spots when a long-eared myotis bat skims the surface of a man-made guzzler, eager to scoop a mouthful of water in the muggy heat of the night.
