Flying Foxes

I painted this painting after seeing the terrible news stories about the flying fox deaths in Cairns. We had just visited the city a few months before and I had enjoyed watching their nightly awakening and flight. The city has a number of trees full to the brim with these animals but unfortunatly thier number has been decimated by the heat, here and in many places around Australia.
