Hung Out to Dry

Hung Out to Dry

One of my best strategies for doing bird and wildlife photography is to take my camera for a ride. I found this opossum eating rotting apples out of a tiny tree along a back country road. I pulled over and photographed him at nearly point blank range for fifteen minutes. He was worried at first, but quickly realized that I was less dangerous than the apples were delicious. The light faded; I left him to his dinner and drove home for mine.
