More Possum Magic

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  a Brush Tailed Possum came boldly up to our outdoor dining table. He was nibbling on a rice cracker and didn’t seem at all frightened by the camera flash. We realize that wildlife should not be fed or encouraged but it was hard to resist posting this photograph. Our weather has been very dry lately so, with very little fruit to be found, he may well have been asking for help. We hope you enjoy these close up shots.
