These bats clocks up distances of up to 40 miles (65km) as they soar through Africa's setting skies every evening in search of food<br />

<br />
The stunning photos, captured by wildlife photographer Stephen Belcher, capture Africa's largest mammal migratation in Zambia at the peak of fruit production.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
