A face in the leaves.

I was doing a bit of autumn sweeping in the garden, when I noticed a rather strange pile of leaves on the ground.  The leaves were all chewed up and there were bit of fruit in them as well!

In the branches above me I noticed a very scruffy looking nest sort of thing. Peering out of the nest were two small faces - both attached to Ring-Tailed Possums.  Needing no excuse to put down the broom I went inside to get my camera!


You can find more pictures from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

Busy week - replies may be slow!

Cutie pie. Just love ringtails, they tend to harvest my grapes.

Oh you took my breath away ... what a sweet little face and how lucky are you to have them in your yard. Isn't it fall where you are ... isn't it late for babies? My goodness, I hope they will be okay when it gets cold. Luckily you don't have winters like we do. Thanks, Stewart, this was a real treat ... I have never seen a Ringtail Possom.

So adorable. A more exciting find than a bird nest, even.

Such little sweeties. I know that many people consider possums and raccoons and ringtails (of all kinds) to be pests, but I really love them.

What big eyes they have! You sound like me when it comes to wielding a broom--camera is preferred.

I echo some of the others who envy your good fortune in seeing a ring-tailed possum in your backyard. So glad you caught that photo, Stewart. I'm just getting back to the blogging world but it is always great fun to pay a visit here.
