A Flying Squirrel

I went to Tomakomai to discuss my study data with my collaborator.

After discussion, I had free time at evening, so I was forward to the cavity nest of Flying Squirrel which I saw sometimes in this season but I couldn't take photo.

After standing by the tree, an individual was out of nest.
As soon as I recognized it, I looked into viewfinder but it was not in hole.
To check the exposure, I took a photo and previewed...


I heard its voice "jeeeech jeeeeech".

It flew away after several minutes later.
