This Little Red Flying Fox (Australian Bat) opened his wings to move his neighbours aside. Backlight was provided naturally by overcast but bright sky. I took the photo while fighting off mosquitoes down in the depths of the mangrove swamp.

Thanks for all comments. The ones regarding blurriness only confirmed what I first thought about the shot. And you are right those who said "too busy" I will remember that for the next challange.

A very busy shot, and slightly blurry.

I thought they were leaves at first... the title helped to bring this shot together for me. I wish there was just a little more light to make the rest of the bats not so dark but I like the wings spread out on that one guy. Nicely done!

Great choice of subject matter for a backlighting challenge. Very good tight crop on the bat with spread wings and his buddies. Compositionally the photo is just too busy with all the branches and leaves.
