I don’t put the night camera up every night. I need a couple of days to process pictures. And sometimes, I need more time than that. For some reason, on the night of April 7, the raccoons didn’t show up, so I got 1020 (that seems to be the number) pictures of flying squirrels. I also got to see more squirrels.
Usually, I only see one Flying Squirrel at the time, but this time, you could see the squirrels doubled up on the big feeder and on the smaller feeder and sometimes, flying too. I couldn’t get all the pictures together as a square.
The feeders are spread out across the deck and squaring them is nearly impossible or at the very least, awkward. Nonetheless, I think I got some good ones here. If you look carefully, you can see their paws stretched out in front of them as they glide to their destination.
They’ve got pretty good control of that whole gliding thing. They land exactly where they intend to land.
