Back in April I was staying with my bear watching friend Denise and her husband Rick's place for a couple nights. One evening we got home and Rick noticed that their motion-light out back went on. Denise and I went on to the deck to see if some wildlife set off the motion light and sure enough, we spotted this Opossum climbing up a tree! We noticed something in its mouth so got a flashlight .. and it was a nearly whole cookie in its mouth! Rick ended up telling us that he had tried a cookie and didn't like it, so threw it outside. Denise and I took turns holding the flashlight while the other one of us took photos.
We eventually went inside to let the possum eat his cookie. About 20 minutes later we saw him climbing down the tree, having consumed the cookie. It was a pretty cool experience photographing a possum for my first time! :)
