Australian Common Brushtail Possum.
This beautiful marsupial sleeps all day in the backyard shed getting ready for his nocturnal fruit searches.

Nice - I gather he's quite tame. Traditional photographic advice would be to focus on the eyes instead of the nose, letting the nose be slightly OOF, but I like this, and your subject is appropriate. Any chance of getting all of him? I realize that its not the easiest task, trying to capture a picture of a nocturnal animal, but I'm curious to see what your possums look like, compared to ours (from this picture, yours are cuter).

Lovely shot. I agree, that in this case the sharpness on the nose lends itself to the shot.

Very interesting creature. I also agree with the other comments, the nose was the proper focal point for this picture.
