FEATURED in All soft and cuddlies, September 2009 – even mmore thanks!!
This baby brushtail possum is now so used to me that s/he simply rushes along the tree branch and takes the apple pieces straight from my hand. Mum is a little more reserved (and a little scary, frankly!), but she will also creep along and take apple from me.
I was amazed when I took these pics, the lens was a mere foot or so away from this baby’s face, and the flash appeared to make absolutely no impression on her!!
Canon EOS400D, f/6.3, 1/60, ISO-400
No manipulation at all – straight from the camera
Taken by finding the possum with a flashlight, and pointing-and-shooting with the other hand
