CRADLE MT POSSUM

WINNER, PORTFOLIO PRIZE

Common brushtail possum, Trichosurus vulpecula

Taken behind a cabin, I only had one flash and a remote which I used through the window. I pointed the flash at the cabin wall and used it to bounce and spread the light over a large area. The possums were already interested in our dinner so I rubbed a little juice from the pan into the moss to get the brushy where I needed it.
