This little orange possum baby tonight allowed me to feed it a small piece of apple, and to cuddle it while it ate the apple, and hold the end of its tail.
I can’t quite capture the intense orange colour of its fur, and the flash washes it out quite badly. I’ve warmified this a bit, but it still is a poor representation of the real orangeness of its fur. Anyone who can help me on how to capture this more accurately, with a torch and a flash, please BM me!!!!
