We have a new resident in our home. Actually, a new resident under our porch. Recently I’ve noticed a slow, ambling opossum making its way to and from the underside of our back porch in both day and night. As terrible as I know their teeth are, they are quite cute…from a distance. I grabbed a quick picture from behind the screened window in our dining room just as the little guy disappeared around a corner.
I leave well enough alone with wild animals – as long as they don’t become a problem to us or our neighbors, we’re alright with the parade of wildlife that wanders through our rural subdivision. We likely disturbed a great deal of their home when our properties were built – we owe it to them if they want to walk through once in a while, to let them do so in peace.
