A few Southern Flying squirrels,
These are reportedly quite rare around here.
A nieghbour feeds them through the winter inside his woodshed.
I set a trailcam there to catch pics of them.
Sony Cybershot 3.2 MP

I really don't think they are all that rare, just nocturnal :wink:

I like the 1st and 2nd squirrel photos. One thing to note, I think you got the date wrong. It's 2009 not 2008 ;)

Old pic... :wink:
Just looking to see differant species of squirrels and stuff from around the globe.
Even the same species if they appear differant.

I was going to say... yes, it's already 09, but it's not October yet! :D

On the other note, the first two came out the best because they were taken with an SLR... My favorite has to be the first one, looks awesome! :)

lets revive this thread :)

Caught this guy in the middle of a farmers field at an odd time for him... 12:30pm and bright and sunny. When I got back to the car I was knee deep in mud and stunk like swamp water but I figure the pics were worth it :P

I know porcupines dont see well but this guy's eyes were really clouded over... need to find out if this is normal for the species or if this guy was blinder than usual.

I shot pics 1 and 3 with my white balance set to cloudy even though it was a sunny day and high noon... had read that it will produce a warmer image.

and tried to get a good shot of the quills... he wasn't too pleased with me this close, bout 1.5 meters, and I wasn't gonna push it any more as he was getting agitated :(

Could be just fresh from hibernation wolf.
See how long its "hair" is?
That'll wear off after some moving around.
I'm sure it's eyes will come around also been asleep for four months or so. :wink:

Nice shots, everyone!

kpr- I love the flying squirrels! They're very uncommon around here, too, but I might just get a chance to work with them later this summer.

Your porcupine looks confused. You should have let him know that it was a strange time of day for him to be out.

The bio-nerd in me just can't resist.... are you taking yourself a bit off-topic? Raccoon + Skunk = carnivores. The picture of the skunk is adorable, though! :D

K Lantz, nice rabbit! Funny you should capture one on this particular morning. Fun fact: rabbits are actually only distantly related to rodents. Rabbits are lagomorphs, an Order that also contains hares and pika.
