Six Word Saturday:
It was just after dark and all the other humans had gone home when I heard a loud thumping and rustling sound coming from the bin. I froze and slowly glanced around, hoping I wasn’t about to be pounced on from the shadows. This possum was doing the same from its shelter in the bin. We each held our ground, not willing to make the first move. The possum hung around just long enough for me to get my phone out and take a photo.
Happy Saturday everyone!
Oh I remember many an encounter with possums
I saw another one running across the road last night, it must be the season for them.
I can imagine that was scary for a minute!
It just appeared out of nowhere Gilly!
They are pretty scary looking, I agree!
It is the terrible night photography that makes this one scary looking, they aren’t really – it was more the sudden noise and clatter it was making inside the bin.
Too bad you weren’t more fully prepared. Coulda been stew for dinner
Looks really scary, Georgia. I would have screamed and no doubt, have frightened it away. 🙂
They are just small animals Sylvia, so harmless really
