The natural world around me, both a few steps and a few miles, away.

My Newest Visitor
Here I am, looking out of that back window again. And, what do I see? This charming fellow.
I don't think I've ever seen an opossum at the feeder before. But, I do think I may have seen this guy. A couple of times in the last few weeks, I've looked out of my window after it's dark, to see a small shape sitting quietly at the feeder. At first, I thought RAT! RAT! RAT! and was ready to stop feeding altogether. But, it didn't act like a rodent, who tend to be much more active. It think that the mystery has just been solved. He's kind of a cute little thing, in an ugly sort of way, isn't he?
