Up until a few nights ago, I never thought there were possums in my area. However, they seem to love the nightlife in my backyard. Here is one video of the possum shuffling off into the darkness and another of him getting up close and personal with the camera.
My night camera is attached to the trunk of a tree which has a lot of sharp edges. This one raccoon seems to enjoy rubbing up against it right in front of the camera lens and getting a good scratch. He also brought a friend.
Happy New Year 2022. I look forward to spending many long, sleepless nights with all nightroamers out there. To anyone awake in the middle of the night, just know that you are not alone.
