I have been taking photos all year, of each of the possums that have visited. This one is young and has different markings; very shy too.

Hi, my name is Robyn J. Blackford. I am a retired nurse who loves photography, pyrography and writing. I live with my husband in the rainforest of Tallebudgera Valley in Queensland, Australia.

All my photos are what I see through the lens.
