Opossum in my Lemon Tree

    Newer Older

    "An Opassom hath an head like a Swine, and a taile like a Rat, and is of the bignes of a Cat. Under her belly she hath a bagge, wherein she lodgeth, carrieth, and sucketh her young."
    John Smith - 1608

    Note: I was standing right at arm's length to this animal to take the photo. My yard is fenced, so the animal enters the yard to look for food by climbing up this tree. When I stood by the tree the opossum kept still and I could take several photos using a flash. Normally they only come out around 2-4am, but on this night the creature was on my patio between 9-10pm.
