Thank you friends for the appreciation

Here are the details of my set up

This was in a cave and a certain point of the cave was quite narrow approx a meter x meter height and width.. I observed the flight path and they were passing around the middle of the narrow area

The challenge was the speed of the flight and size of the bats.. The bat was less than 5 inches wing span approx and was travelling quite fast. 8/10 times the sensor was not firing donno why

The cave was too narrow for entering and setting up, plus Good numbers of venomous snakes inside the cave

Set up was built on Pvc pipes as there was no way to dig for pipes or bamboo sticks
Camera was also fixed to another Pvc

Used IR sensors.. Stinky design.. Thanks stinky

Camera d500 18_55 @ 18 mm for few days and 24mm for another day, set up the focal point 12 inches away from Sensor beam.. Anticipation it to travel 12 inches before the Camera fires.

f16. ISO - 1000

Flash one sb—28 ISO 400, 24mm 1\32

This was first attempt. Any suggestions let me know guys.. Will do another attempt next month

Those are freaking cool! Great shots. You have to be pleased with that.

Did your trigger fire the flashes or the shutter? Would you mind sharing your settings?
Gartooth.. The triggers fired the shutter

Great pics! You do know that they are not vampire bats? Looks like a leaf-nosed bat - Hipposideros. I don't think that detracts from what you have managed to do! Excellent work!

Terrific photos -- but I am curious -- did you photograph these in Mexico or Latin America? (I thought you were working in India).
