Default Possum on Flagstaff gardens

Had this guy on a tree near a park sleeping weird.



When he woke up, he had a weird look at me, I hope he was looking for some food from me.



They are called as possums in Australia.

Cute little fellow. Definitely different from the opossums (which we usually just call possums) that we have in the western hemisphere. How close was he? How long a lens for these shots?

I had 14-54 mkii lens on my camera when i shot this. That's the generic lens that sits on my camera. I could get close as 4 ft above from my camera.

Peru, your possum is definitely a lot cuter than ours. Possums are actually quite dirty animals here
