Thanks Torfinn – lovely to hear from you:)
Aren’t they cute?? Tonight I reminded Kitten that she liked me to pat her and hold her tail, and she seemed to remember, and relax a bit. She’s a very nervous mother:)
God that baby must hang on tight. LOL. Great shot Mate. How far from there to the table???
They really do just hang on, through everything – I’ve taken pics of Kitten’s baby hanging on when her mother runs upside down along a branch (but the shots weren’t any good, damn it!) From where I shot this to the feeding table – about 70cm??
It would be a fair jolt on landing then. LOL.
They seem to have super shockers – they leap from one tree to the other, and even from quite high up to the ground, and they just seem to absorb it – they have really huge thighs, in relation to the rest of their bodies.
Where to next then,Denzil,National Geographic??,lights, camera,action,it’s in the can,as they say,well done girl!!
Thanks Lance!!! I’m flattered:)
Honestly, it’s just luck!! I’m literally ‘pointing and shooting’ with the light of a torch, and relying on the auto mode of the camera to do the rest!! Sometimes the flash effect is really horrid, but at least I get the shot (I noticed today on a bigger screen that there’s quite a lot of red-eye happening here – pity!)
Congratulations! Your artwork has been featured in the Nature’s Wonders group.!!
Thank you so much for choosing Kitten and her adorable baby!
Ever Cool! What is this animal? I don’t have these here. Congratulations on your amazing capture!
Hi Rose, thanks for your kind comment!This is an Australian native animal, the brush-tailed possum. It’s a marsupial and widely distributed around Australia, although under threat in some places (not at my place, clearly!!!). Its scientific name is Trichosurus vulpecula, and here’s a link (which I really hope works!)
Congratulations on your wonderful feature, brilliant work and well deserved.
Thanks Andrea – Kitten is a real cutie!!!
nice work! :)
