Farm Visitor





 Our little house dog, Munchie, has been carrying on a lot today and I looked out to see a new visitor under the bird feeder, chowing down on fallen seed as fast as he could....
 
I'm one of the rare people that has a soft spot for possums, and he seemed to know that I meant no harm as I moved close to take his picture.... though he kept his eye on me!  This wasn't our usual visitor, Albert, that I wrote about here, but appeared to be a younger possum.
He didn't tell me his name.

There was a recent discussion on Alpacasite about possums, here's an interesting link for the Possum Society of North America (no, I'm not a member!)

Very different to our Possums, great to have around until they decide to try to set up home in the roof of the house

Yes, I understand that the possums in Australia have very nice fiber for spinning! (I've seen it, very nice). Would love to learn more about them. Thanks for commenting!
