Weekly Winners – May 10 – May 16th – Baby Opossum

May 17, 2009 at 8:14 am 13 comments

This week’s photo inventory was sparse. I was sick all week. But I did snag a couple of shots and I didn’t have to travel far. I went briefly to Elizabeth City’s Potato Festival. Even closer to home, a baby opossum with a head injury (don’t worry- injury not pictured) wandered into the yard. He’s currently sleeping in a box and waiting to be claimed by a wildlife rehabilitator.

    Good for you taking the baby opossum to get help. Have to say I’m not too fond of the grown ups, but the baby is kinda cute.

    I guess it is cute. The picture of Ryan is cute. Why did the chicken cross the road. To show a opposum it can be done!

    Super snaps for an illness-plagued week! I love the conversational atmosphere of the clowns. And the little possum is so cute in his raggedyness, isn’t he?
