Grabbing a drink of water for this grey-headed flying fox can be more challenging than you might think. Photographer Ofer Levy waited patiently in over 40° C (104° F) weather while also standing chest deep in the water hoping one of these creatures would swoop low enough to be photographed. The animal drinks by swooping down into the water and getting itself wet, then licking the water off of itself:
Levy made his passion into his career and mainly does wedding photography but also loves being outdoors. He says,
“Later on in life I became especially interested in wildlife photography. This passion persists and I spend a lot of time and effort in the field, honing my skills, and enjoying the ongoing challenges that this area of photography demands.”
Levy is the recipient of multiple photography awards and is living his dream. You would have to really love the grey-headed flying fox to stand in that hot weather for three hours a day waiting for the right moment!
