This is another photograph going the rounds on the internet and allegedly showing another "Giant bat photo" including the supposed identification as a "Golden capped flying fox" !!
On one of the Facebook discussion boards I made the ID of it:
This is not photoshop, it is forced perspective and it almost works, except the guys in the background are out of focus. This is incidentally a Colugo or "Flying Lemur" native to SE Asia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colugo
Jc Johnson So the story goes, when I was 17 years old up in North Central Minnesota, back in the early 80's. I was on my way back from dropping off my movie dates- yes dates, I took two sisters to the movies. They lived a few miles back in the woods off a dirt road. Dropped them off,(around midnight) driving back toward the highway, in an area where there were corn fields, I saw what I thought was a little old man in a trench coat walking across the road. I thought this because he was taking short little steps, and it looked looked like he had a hump on the upper part of his back? I would have put him around 5 feet tall also? I slowed down and stopped, kept him in my headlights as he crossed. When he got to the other side of the road, I realized he was standing on the edge of a culvert, which would have been about a four foot drop and a deeper ditch that would add for a bigger fall. This concerned me. As I was preparing to roll down my window and yell at him to stop, he jumps off the culvert, and at that moment, a huge set of wings are deployed, and he was gone.
If I recall correctly, I think I shared this story with my cousin Lisa Murphy ?
