Hello, I'm over here
  Hello, I'm over here
Hello, I'm over here
This poor possum has started coming around for the past 3 months & just tonight took some food out of my hand. As you can see, it's had a hard life, it's missing an arm & has bad scars around it's mouth. Lens aperture f/5, shutter speed 1/15sec, focal length 32mm, ISO 640.

I would say this little character needs as many friends as it can get, Chris! It is good to see it has found a restaurant at your home!
Buladelah sounds like a great day out!

Great capture with such nice detail even with a slow shutter speed. Like the POV too! Great work! Be careful.

Thanks a lot. She has started coming in with a baby on her back, I tell you it will be a strong baby as it has to do all the hanging on.

Thanks so much for your comments, I have put a picture of the Mother & Baby in my gallery tonight, it's not a great picture, but the best I could do without using a flash.
