Photo taken: July 26, 2015
The Mecca I work at is located on the outskirts of town, which means we’re no stranger to getting visits from critters of all kinds… especially on the night crew. When one of my co-workers spotted a baby possum sitting on a railing on our outdoor patio one night, I felt compelled to rush home at lunch hour and get my camera… which was just in time to catch Mama dropping by to pick her spawn up. The entire story and photo set can be found in this post, but this was the one photo that turned out to be pure gold. How often do you get to see a mother possum lugging around her child on her back, let alone get a photo of them where both critters are looking right at the camera? I don’t care how ugly people think possums are… I think they’re adorable, and these this family portrait is rightfully one of the best pictures I’ve ever taken!
