This Virginia Opossum (Didelphis virginiana) is going to be extremely tired tonight. For about 4 hours, in broad daylight, V2 had it pinned up a tree. Alerted to this little dilemma, whilst I was trying to have a peaceful afternoon pruning, I wandered over (with my trusty camera, of course) to assess the situation. V2 was patiently waiting for the opossum to come down from it's perch: the opossum was patiently waiting for V2 to vaporise - fat chance of that! My little V2 is one determined poochie, she is like, er, a dog with a bone. Or a dog with an opossum up a tree.
