Nice step into the new month, Fons ;)

In order to renovate the roof of the central station an enormous scaffold was built. The station is a national monument. It was designed by van der Gaast (in 1965) with a free standing hyperbolic paraboloid roof which is unique in the world.

Everything is finished except for the roof. That will take a year or so... After that ProRail perhaps finds something else ;)

Interesting composition and lighting Armando. How many different bats in the shots? Two, three?

Some sun, some rain. Some are free some are caged...

The bats are far more social compared to hummingbirds. I had to laugh; I never new bats would come to feed at a hummingbird feeder. I like hummingbirds but they fiercely guard a food source, mean suckers.

Wait, I've been tricked. It's a composite! :)

Composite via The Little Shop of Horrors?

Two to four bats is more social than hummingbirds. The most you'll find with hummingbirds are two, a matted pair. Even they spar over who gets to sit on the hummingbird feeder. The mate will have to sit a a meter away. They will guard the feeder when they are too stuffed to eat anymore.
