This makes the fourth bit of wildlife to visit us that I have been able to photograph since spring. This is a baby possum. We have had possums in the past, but they rarely come right up to the door like this, much less a baby alone. There is alot of construction in our town and it's pushing the critters into the developed areas. We have had several encounters with foxes as well, but I haven't been able to get a picture. It's usually too dark and too far from the house.
Now possums are some of the ugliest critters, but amazingly, even one of them as a baby can be kinda cute.
