“After the rain, it sometimes rains again, and when it does, what else is one to do except just hang?” asks Your Shot member Douglas Gimesy. He submitted this image of a fruit bat resting in a tree during a rain shower in Melbourne, Australia, its wings wrapped around its body for warmth. Fruit bats, as their name suggests, eat fruit and play an important environmental role in seed dispersal and pollination.
