Reader Steve Coulter showed me this photo on his phone at an appearance and Daley’s Hunt-N-Fish a couple of weeks ago.
Abundant in East Texas, these shy and mainly nocturnal squirrels are rarely seen by humans. I once had the amazing blessing of seeing one glide from tree to tree as a burnt orange sun faded away in the swamps of Orange County a few years ago.
However, that is the only one I have seen in the wild.
This beautiful little glider was in his deer blind and stuck around long enough for him to take several shots.
