There are 4 flying squirrels visiting our bird feeder at night.  I took the first picture with a 100L-IS handheld.  The second was with 70-200mmL IS with 2XII on tripod.  Both had flash illumination. The flying squirrel in first picture was no more that about 12 inches from the end of my lens.  I finally wanted to get a close up so i set some seeds on the railing.  And I got one.
The feeder feers birds by day (third picture) and flying squirrel by night.

Thanks Serendipity and thanks Click.
These guys are adorable, size of a large chipmunk, and scurry like one as well, with their tails pointing up in the air. I am setup once again waiting for them to come to the feeder, did see two of them on the trees, but so far did not come to the seeds yet.
I am trying to shoot them when they are gliding, but, it would be difficult at best.  The environment is so dark, their glide path unpredictable ...  just add up to an impossible task.
Just keep trying.

Sometimes you see things where you least expect them. This is a mink, shot in a crowded park, in downtown Ottawa, Canada...

Did a feeding tour a local zoo, was good fun; here's a photo of a tiger up close, not cropped, I was holding the camera in one hand and the tongs in the other, trying to get the shot and not lose any fingers.

Couple of shots from my recent trip to Tanzania, we were up near the Mara River on the Kenyan Border hoping to see the Wildebeest Migration Crossing the Mara, Loads of Wildebeest but we were about a week early for the Crossing unfortunately.

Getting a little Bored with seeing thousands of Wildebeest doing nothing but eat Grass we started heading to a series of Grass Fires on the Serengeti, ended up the most exciting part of the trip, keeping out of the Fire ourselves and taking Images of Animals confused by the Flames and Smoke.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
