Didn’t scare too easy

Normally I eschew all types of flash photography (this, because I don’t have a bounce flash), but there was no other way to catch this critter in the alley.

I could also extoll the talents of my mom again, as she used to make very realistic stuffed versions of these creatures and sell them back in the day.

You’d swear they were real.

My only other thought with this photo is that I had to look up if “opossum” was really how the word was spelled. Without spell check, I am a mess. In grade school, I missed “prairie” in the spelling bee. The devastation was so tremendous to my small mind that I pretty much gave up on earning the top marks in school from that point out.
