Glass-Wing Blossom Bat
by David Natale
With a taste for nectar the diminutive Glass-Wing Blossom Bat spends most of its waking hours wrapped securely around flowers, face buried in the petals. They work tirelessly to visit as many blooms as possible when feeding, for the energy required to keep their fluffy tails aloft can be quite substantial. Any sighting should be considered fortunate.

David's love of nature and particularly botany is a strong influence in his artwork. His paintings portray a shared connection and participation with the natural world that can easily be forgotten in modern life. Perhaps, through a better communion with nature, we might live more empathetic and compassionate lives.
David works from his home studio in Los Angeles, CA where he lives with
his wife and cat.
