Flying squirrel in flight

A flying squirrel leaps from a tree in Anmashan, Taiwan

I was surprised I was able to capture this little guy in flight. It was a very dark night, the only light was a flashlight my friend was using to find the squirrels. I used an on camera flash (SB-800) with my 105mm lens. I had my 70-200 but I was standing below this tree, camera to my eye and focused, hoping they would fly for me, I would have never been able to hold that weight for so long. The tree in the photo gives it perspective as well.
