Jim photographed these little creatures last night on the deck of his home, Ravenwood. "I was surprised how tame they were. This is the first time I tried to interact with them. Note their large eyes, they are completely nocturnal."
The Northern flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus) is one of two species of the genus Glaucomys, the only flying squirrels found in North America.
