FLYING SQUIRRELS AND RACCOONS – Marilyn Armstrong

We put the camera out last night. It was the first time in a week because it wasn’t raining. It was extremely windy which means that at least 700 of the 1022 pictures it took were just the movement of the feeders in the wind. And some of them probably were pictures of flying squirrels hiding behind the feeder.

So I deleted a lot of pictures and put the camera out tonight, but it’s going to rain, so I’m not expecting much. Supposed in another week or so, the weather might improve. We live in hope.

I got some fun pictures of raccoons sharing the feeder with flying squirrels. It’s the first time I’ve seen that. Usually it’s one or the other.

These are my fun photos of the day. There are a lot more pictures. Hopefully, I’ll get to them tomorrow. And probably the next day and a few more days after that. Even after deleting more than 600 pictures, there are still more than 600 remaining.

  2. Love the idea of all the life going on around us that we don’t know about. I have a fondness for raccoons as I had one as a pet when I was in grade school..It was an orphan and my mother made the mistake of letting my dad and I go out to see it without going along. He was her baby for 4 years.
