Capture anything interesting on your handheld or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or anything unique? We’d love to see it.

Each week, we’ll run a photo from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page.

While we’re on the subject of flying squirrels this week, Fredrick Voelker captured this one on his trail camera one April night in Bear Creek Township.

Voelker admits he didn’t know what the creature was at first, but the eyes and tail gave it away. Still, I didn’t know if the animal was the endangered northern flying squirrel or the more common southern variety, so I asked PGC biologist Greg Turner to solve the mystery. He was pretty confident the squirrel is the southern variety. By the way, flying squirrels are nocturnal, which is why the photo was captured at night.
