Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014
The photographer, Lukasz Bozycki is a cancer researcher at Poland's Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology. He spoke of the specific kind of bat depicted in the photo: "It's a Daubenton's bat. I found seven of them hibernating in an old bunker built by the Germans in the Second World War. There are many of these abandoned buildings in Poland. The bats were in complete torpor, taking just one breath every 90 minutes. Most of them were tucked away, inaccessible. But this one was just hanging down from the ceiling."
