Artist's Description

I haven’t been taking many possum shots lately – not sure why – so the other night I slung on the camera and a fully charged torch, and headed out into the dark.

Amazingly I encountered three possums whose identity I’m not sure of. Two were too far away to identify, other than by exception, but they may have been Mr Smooshy and another one I’ve come across lately, who is too big to be DropKick so perhaps it’s another drop-in.

So the normal crew came for food, Fatty and Fearless, as well as Fatty’s older baby Kitten, and another one which I also didn’t recognise, but who took food from my hand, let me stroke her and double-check she was a girl by stroking her tummy and checking out there were no boy parts. Maybe it was The Gripper.

So I put the camera to use, and snapped little Fearless happily munching an apple.
