This little half-grown possum keeps coming to our yard to eat the crabapples off our tree. This is the 2nd time I've shot him. Of course, when it comes, it is pitch dark, so the image is obviously flashed. D800, 80-400VR, 5.3,1/60, ISO 640- possum Sharpie, 5.3, 1/640, ISO 320, D800, 80-400VR
The Sharp-shinned hawk or its kin has been around for a number of years now. It regularly kills a dove in our yard, much to our dismay. And some days, we have no birds on the feeders, thanks to Mr. Sharpie.

How do I post an image that can be clicked on and enlarged? This function wasn't possible back in the day when I posted regularly. So many things have changed! I thought if I uploaded a large image, it would be over the limit, or else it would look so huge on the posting that it would be hard to look at! This one was 600 pixels longest side. When I did one at 1000 pixels, it was huge on the forum.
