This past weekend I spent time with my fellow Rotarians at Echuca and Moama which are twin towns on either side of our mighty Murray River. The Murray forms the border of the States of Victoria and New South Wales. We stayed in cabins at the attractive Murray River Resort. After dark we found a Brush Tailed Possum in the trees near our cabin. Since we are talking about and drawing Australian animals in Art this Term I was fortunate to be able to get up close enough to take some phootgraphs of these shy creatures. This one is a female and because Possums are marsupials, if you look carefully, you will see her pouch on her underbelly.
