Little Invaders

This past week we've seen baby opossums in our backyard.  There are at least two.

They usually appear late in the afternoon.  Didn't Mother explain the nocturnal thing?

A little camera shy.  This is also the face they show to my dogs who have been very good with them. These photos were shot in my daughter's "fairy hole."  It's a tree hollow that she adds fake flowers and stones to every Spring.  So she decided the opossums are friends with the fairies.  Nice thought; hope they don't make faces at the fairies!

Happy June!


  1. Baby possums are cute, but we had an old one sauntering around on our patio once that was so ugly it scared my daughter! Have a nice weekend!

    1. Yes, the adults aren't the cutest creatures in the world. My old Lab used to find them at night. He never hurt one, but they would "play dead" until my dad went out and got our dog in. Pretty funny. Hope you have a nice weekend too!

  2. Yes, cute as babies, but scary as heck when they grow up :)

  3. Oh my gosh, those are the cutest little things I've ever seen! Great pictures Diane!

  4. They look so sweet and cute but I know they don't make welcome pets! You sure got some great photos though! Babies are the cutest!

  5. So cute but can so evil. They have done alot of damage in our yard and they can be vicious. But babies are always cute!!

  6. Cute, I know, but not nice. Do they bother cats?
