I love grapes

I love grapes
This possum comes to the backdoor every night for something to eat. Grapes seem to be the favourite. It's very hard to get a picture, I can't open the door very much or the possum would be in like a flash. Lens aperture f/3.5, shutter speed 1/8sec, focal length 4mm, ISO 160.

I have never seen anything like this, Chris. I think you have made a winner here.

How sweet!!! :D This is so darned cute, Chris. :D I love that you feed him grapes and things. How neat is that?!

When I was a kid we had a possum that would come into the yard a lot at night and our little toy fox terrier dog would corner it and bark like crazy.

They got close to battling it out one night. Both the dog and possum made some vicious noises. We thought that might be "it" for one of them...They were both small animals.

Dad said the possum had to go. So, I got the horrid job of holding the flash light as my brother shot it at close range in the corner of the yard. It was a nightmare night for me that I will never forget. :( !!!

I am so thrilled that YOUR little possum is having a happy life and loves coming to visit you. I wish I could say the same in return and I feel so badly for having to have held that flash light on that rainy night so long ago.

Thank you all for the lovely comments. Sorry Laura, you had to go through such an awful experience. Sometimes we have to fix or change things, we can't kill all our problems, unfortunately!!!!

This one looks a lot cuter than the one casually strolling on our backyard wall last month, Chris. Excellent closeup, especially under the circumstances.
Clearly your heart has been won over by little Mr. P. Try not to get him so spoiled he tells you, "Beulah, peel me a grape"! (Quote from a Mae West film.)
