Okay, I know it’s really correct spelling to say Opossum, but I’m a Texas girl and I grew up with possums, not opossums. I’ve always had a possum that visits my deck nightly, but tonight her baby showed up. So darn cute! I grabbed the camera and went running outside to get a picture to show you, but she was so quick – I saw her face and then there was nothing. So trust me, it really was cute!
I’m embarrassed to show you this, but here it is – proof of the vanishing baby possum! Right before I snapped this pic with the flash (it was about 10:00), I saw her tiny, triangular head peek around that tree trunk. Within seconds, she did a magical disappearing act, so that the only picture I was able to get was this ragtag image of my unfinished new bed with dying plants in it. But really, there WAS a baby possum there!
