FrizzText: Before Otto Lilienthal and others risked their lives by flight tests, some other creatures already knew how it works!
Grey-headed flying fox, a photo by Chi Liu, kindly sent to my group BLOG IT!, click on the picture to enter his galleries on Flickr.com
P.S.: When I visited the Alps, I curiously watched some sporty flying foxes:

I never heard of a flying fox…flying squirrels…yes
Stunning shot of that ‘Blackbird’ over the alps Frizz! I have seen ‘flying’ squirrels in the wild, but not foxes 🙂
I love this flying fox.
Here is a modern flying human:
hi frizz, there are actually flying foxes and here in the philippines they could be found in Subic Bay.. these protected specie of bats are so big, its wingspan may reach up to 2 meters..
thank you Elizz, for your witness, I nearly thought it is an Adobe photoshop trick, featuring a flying squirrel, pimped up to a flying fox – 2 meters wingspan – you are kidding me?
so true frizz… they really have a big wingspan…
thank you for the link, Elizz, you really made me curious!
As my cat saw the photo, she got very jealous! She would also love to fly and to provide wild chases with our magpies, which always had an advantage. There’s a sort of “Red Baron” / Richthofen pilot in my cat!
And Leonardo Da Vinci made some studies on this incredible animal….flying is an old dream.
Wow, flying foxes! Amazing shot, Frizz! Thanks for the link of Chi Liu’s photos, pretty cool.
Not certain why, but I’m terrified by even the idea of flying squirrels–too bat-like, maybe.
I’d like to be a flying fox for one day. I’d wear a helmet, though.
I would like to see you
with a fresh pilot license
flying like a bat (with helmet)!
Great juxtaposition! We have loads of flying foxes where we live. They are very noisy at the moment (mating season).
Wow these are awesome shots Frizz!
Amazing shot, Frizz!
I loved your post so much I reblogged it. In fact we had been in communique about it. But out of the blue, it disappeared?! I went back to reblog it, but, no such luck. It says that I have reblogged, and will not allow, am I going down that rabbit hole again?
