Showing the milk vending machine, now located outside the old residence
Mum and joey. Normally shots like this are scrapped but this had a brush-like quality I kind of liked
Common Brushtail Possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) wanting a handout outside the window at my desk
Mum, keeping out of range of baby boy who she is a bit over carrying around at the moment... This is the telescope the moonshots were taken through...
But he can't lift it so I had to bite it off for him. He's tiny! The brave little angel was trying to catch moths on the window after mummy abandoned him (temporarily - hiding on the telescope 3 metres away)
A mother Common Wallaroo or Euro (Macropus robustus) with her female joey in the rain. The ears are twisted (and blurred from movement) as I was whistling to them to get their heads up from eating.
The joey is more often in the pouch than out and this is the first time I have seen her actually eat grass rather than give up on it within a minute and either hop around like a toy annoying the rest of the mob (about 7 adults including one huge and two smaller males), or get back in out of the cold for a warm drink...
One of the boy babies went to great lengths to get my attention for a carrot
Two mothers, two sons, one uncle, one nephew, one grandmother, one grandson, one daughter, one sister and one brother and if they get together there's a lot of hissing and barking noises... (yes there are only 4 possums in the shot and none of the above are missing... lucky the fathers didn't show up or I'd be really confused)
Just realised tonight that there is another mummy here as she came up during this session with a full pouch, I have two babies!
I saw the new baby through the opening in the pouch but it closed up before I got the camera.
A Common Wallaroo or Euro (Macropus robustus) with joey. Pity about the fence but that's how it goes with wildlife.
Guess she didn't like the flash that really shouldn't have gone off (Macropus robustus)
