Jack,
This is the flying squirrel.  They are nocturnal.

I was actually thinking that but I've never seen one in living action.  A trapper long ago gave me one for taxidermy but it never left the freezer until such time as it was thrown out years after my youth when I had left home.  I do remember the amazing connection between front and rear legs.

Now, are they pests like our Red squirrels, chewing holes in every place (like my observatory and the Kleenex) and ripping things to pieces?

I can't say whether they're a pest or not.  We live near the forest and so they don't seem to bother the houses around here.
They seem gentle, and I can watch them for 20 or more minutes while they eat from the bird feeder all the while I'm within 7 feet or so away.
And of red squirrels, I see them once in a long while, and in very remote areas.  the grey are all over now.

Thank you Click.
They're cute.
Pet quality ones (sugar babies, different species, I suppose) sell for $ 500 or more a piece!

Two of my friends came to have some snacks.  But, one had to leave earlier, so I took some portraits of the one who stayed behind.

A somewhat older one, still with my 50D + 100-400 II
It was an overcast and slightly misty winter morning, little light so I had to use relatively slow shutter speed (with the 50D I do not want to exceed ISO800 for reasonable quality...) - but thanks to the excellent IS of the lens no motion blur.

Yes! yes, yes yes.
I love how you managed to stop the two dear overlapping (with those antlers, it wold have been too easy).


I know it was misty and that is part of the appeal, but I wonder what it would be like to use a small bit of dehaze or contrast on the nearer deer to make it stand out a bit more? But that is a minor point. Print on gloss paper, add a frame and voila
