This opossum is one of a few that frequent under our bird feeder during the winter. This was taken yesterday, 1-22-18, we had rain & this opossum was a wet one. He or she was close, so I couldn't fit in that amazing long tail :)
While I know there are many that feel the opossum is something to be desired in the way of looks, I personally find them both interesting and cute in their own way, but that's just me I guess :)
This morning we woke up to winter wonderland in Wisconsin once again, 5 inches of wet heavy snow, the trees and shrubs are all flocked with snow by Mother Nature.
