Wildlife Wednesdays 7

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.

Star of the Week, Ringtail Possum

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.

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”
