This female spectacled flying fox with her baby was snared on a barbed wire fence. We managed to rescue her and the bub (about 4 weeks old) and they were both succesfully released into the wild. The trust in the baby's eyes is endearing, along with mother sleeping while I took the picture. Daintree Wildlife Rescue, N Qld, Australia
