Here is a subject that was hard to shoot:
This is Batty and Scar. They are Straw-Colored Fruit Bats that live at the World Bird Sanctuary in St. Louis Missouri. I set my white balance to florescent, because that seemed to get the truest to real life color result. The bats are in an enclosure, so I got as close as possible to get as much of that out of the picture as possible.
The lighting casts some pretty harsh shadows, so in Aperture I lightened the bat that is further back in the frame. I also messed with the curves slider to get the color the way I wanted it. The photo has also been cropped and sharpened.
