SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: A grey-headed Flying-fox (Pteropus poliocephalus), a native Australian bat, stretches its leathery wings as it flies high over Sydney's Botanical Gardens, 17 August 2005. The bats settled in the gardens many years ago as much of their natural habitat along the coast of New South Wales has been cleared for timber, agriculture and urban development. At night the bats feed on the fruits of many native plants and provide an important function as they are one of the few species that pollinate flowers and disperse the seeds.
