Halloween Bat

What! - a bat hunting in daylight. It must be hungry.
We were out at Buxton in the peaks and notice a long eared bat flitting about around the trees.  It was making elegant circling turns above us and visibly catching insects on the wing.  After about 20 attempts I managed to snap a reasonable image using manual focus.  The bright background and the speed of the bat made the cameras auto focus impossible.
I have often seen these bats in our garden, but always after dark.
