Nocturnal Visitor


In the Tone-Perup Nature Reserve near Manjimup in south western WA, a common brushtail possum sleeps the whole day in an old unused oven. Every night, it comes out through a pipe in the wall to feed. One evening, we waited for it to come out so that we could watch it and shoot some pictures.
