Disturbed ?

Mid afternoon.Siesta time for bats. But something disturbed them and they were all screeching and flying about..and I caught just two in the camera...a zoom shot from our balcony.

Such a situation is so fast that it is difficult to get a picture. The bats look pretty big. Hope not be meat eaters.
