    New Zealand is not the only country where the magic of Middle Earth can happen. More than 1,000 people have taken part in a major event near the Czech capital, Prague, crossing swords and claws, bringing the glorious battle from J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit" to life.

    Just like in the book, elves, dwarves and humans stood against orcs and the wolf-like wargs; however, it wasn't obvious who was victorious — the forces of light or the forces of darkness.

      A little black bat was spotted eating a piece of succulent watermelon and seemed to be unable to stop devouring the delicious fruit. Even though it is not surprising that the creature was gobbling up the melon, as bats are generally not too picky and eat various sorts of food, this certainly is a cute scene to observe.
