I haven’t had much luck this week capturing photos of what’s been around so I decided to give this week a miss. Until early this evening.
When my husband went up the driveway to our rubbish bins he spotted a little possum lying at the foot of a tree with two Tawny Frogmouths up above, no other possum in sight.
It was rescue time.
This is the first Ringtail we’ve seen with such dark colouring, its back looked black and it actually had a tawny red tail. The only ones we’ve seen before had white at the end of the tail but the Vet said these are fairly common.
When I left her at the Surgery she was snuggled down inside an employee’s jumper.
After recent rain I noticed what looked like tiny Iron filings floating in one of the dog’s water dishes but I suspected it was actually a raft of Springtails. I took some photos with my little Panasonic Lumix TZ70.
