Flying squirrel! [Apr. 26th, 2010|09:21 pm]
Simon MacMullen
trishpiglet, dr_jen and I went for a walk in the Rookery at Streatham Common yesterday. In among the rather ordinary pictures I took there are three of a slightly startled squirrel taking flight. I'm amazed they get all four paws off the branch at once...

Cool photos!

Well, photos prove that horses manage it and they're a lot heavier. :-)

Yeah, but they're not several metres off the ground bouncing off a twig!

Ace! Last time I went to the rookery they ate out of my hand - must get round to posting those pics...

Thought you might like them :) And yes, hand-out-of-eating pictures good.
