It is amazing what nature provides for the eye to see and what some can do with a dab of color and brush. Thank you for sharing these gifts of history with us it is as if they can almost suddenly move and come to life.

I have a beautiful print of a sfs in a tree hole holding an acorn and about to take a bite.
It was a painting I got on EBAy. The artist finally closed his store, which is such a shame.

I have the same one Moca. E-bay has a number of nice contemporary paintings and prints.

I have seen the "Boy and squirrel" print on wikipedias SFS page. Is that a small brass chain leach around it's neck or did the squirrel eat his pocket watch? :rofl:

I recently picked up a couple of pics from ebay. One is a first edition by James Lockhart "Flying Squirrel--Glaucomys Volans"
Image

The next is an 1896 antique engraving of a group of flying squirrels. Image

They're both just stunning and I will probably bring them to the conference with me so that other people can see them.

I love how they have little leashes on their flyers. I can't even imagine putting one on Emo!
