Possums might be a common thing in Australia, but like so much of the wildlife I've seen on my travels around the country I find them to be a strange and delightful sight. On a walk last night I saw a couple running on a power line. I ran home to get my camera and the little guys were still up there when I got back.
On a technical aside I would never have thought of making this photo in the film days.For this I used a Nikon D3s ISO 10,000 1/20 sec f 2.8, the lens was a 70-200 VRII shot at 92mm handheld. The focus is set for the nearrest possum. The possum are illuminated by a sodium vapour street light. The clouds are illuminated by a bright moon.
