Possum, opossum.


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.

Vinogirl, I would never have thought that an opossum would have a face that reminds me of a Barn owl, but then again, I know some human faces that. . .

NHW: I understand what you mean about the opossum looking like a barn owl, white face, slanted eyes.

Thud: Let me know what they think.
