    I know it's not that cool but it was cool for me these bats just came out of no where so i zoomed the flash out and started taking pics! then i turned the flash off and cranked up the iso and tried (those were worst). both were taken with a 35 1.8. I thought it was pretty neat.

    So does anyone know how to take photos of bats flying at night???

    Unless you're prepared to expend some effort, including multiple strobe setup and luring them to a defined flight path you'd better stick to hanging bats. You have to get really, really close to them.
