day 189

This snapshot is not my picture of the day, but rather a lesson in watching your entire frame when composing pictures. I took this funny shot by complete accident. The girl's boyfriend was standing directly behind her (if you look close you can just see his arm near her mouth) and in an attempt to keep him from "growing out of her head" I crouched down just a little.... that placed the water rushing out of the spillway in a bad place for her seated position. I didn't notice this until I checked out the back of the camera and it made me laugh and laugh! This is my actual picture of the day. This is one of a pair of baby opossum who are the sole survivors from their family after mama and siblings met a vehicle on the highway. My mom rescued them and is rehabilitating them until they are old enough to return to the wild.
Love and little 'possums

Your "oops" picture makes me laugh! So funny. Love the possum too, and love the fact that your mom is taking care of the little guy! Nora saw this picture and now she wants one too. ;)

LOL thanks, but if Nora ever comes home with a possum I hope it is under better circumstances than our little guys came to us. One of them isn't doing too well right now, we are hoping he wasn't injured in the hit and run, but it doesn't look good.
