Two tricks has a ‘possum
When danger is near.
To climb to a treetop
Or hiss full of fear.
But when these two fail
He tries this instead,
Rolls up like a ball
And pretends he is dead.

From the book "The Opossums" by Anne LaBastille

From my Winter archive: Nikon D700| Nikkor 70-300mm @300mm| f7.1| 1/800 sec| Manual Priority| Hand-held. Shot through an open window while on the Auto-tour
