Glider Feeding Frenzy 08/10/14

Wild Glider Feeding Frenzy at our patch "Jarowair" in South-East Queensland, Australia on the 8th of October 2014.  Three different species of  Gliders. Sugar, Squirrel and Feathertails were seen in the one tree, and were not alone with plenty of gliders around in the smaller eucalyptus trees with fresh tip.  These are some of the many photos that I captured under torchlight of these beautiful creatures.  B.G.

Look closely... I first thought this glider had hold of some gum leaves, until I viewed the photos on the computer and discovered it was in fact a huge green mantis!

The Feathertail Gliders move so swiftly and do not like the torchlight at all, this is the only photo I was able to get due to how quickly they glide away from the light.  08/10/14
