    oh!! opossums are simply adorable. nice picture Thomas. you don’t even have to do thousands of miles to find cool subjects ;)

  • This one came calling Sunday night and just sat in the corner of my back porch and would not move as long as the porch light was on. I left and came back two time with different lens’s.

    Oh lucky you! My dogs would scare them away… though I reckon I hear some in the roof sometimes.
    Lovely capture T!

  • I have not seen him since….The poor fellow was not happy in the corner with the light on him….

    that is awfully close!!!!!! I wouldn’t have gotten near it. They are vicious, even though they are so beautifully interesting

  • I took this with my 300 mm lens so I could keep a little distance…It did not want to move as long as the light was on him…

    Excellent detail in this little guy! I see them occasionally (and I live in the city), and they really do freeze when spotted. I do find them rather scary, though.

  • I did not know that they would freeze like that……

    Nasty looking beast but then they are scavengers. Great closeup, home you used the long lens

  • Yep I used a 300 mm for this shot…I did not want to find out if it was nasty or not…:)
