After dinner that night I was busy sorting out the day's images when Hans came hammering on the door .... bring your camera .... quick!!!

Had to quickly put a card in the camera, put on some shoes and shot across to the kitchen block, where a large crowd had gathered.

Someone had found a torch and was highlighting a female Brushtail Possum with a youngster. There was an adult male sitting up the tree as well.

What a delightful end to the day that was!!
