The mother possum taking a look at me at dinnertime yesterday. I’m disappointed, because moments earlier the baby had popped out of the hole for a look around – I missed getting a picture of it!
This evening – after dark – she came for a walk around my feet when I was sitting on the steps, and I just saw her about two metres up a tree at our back deck. She’s a very busy creature!
It’s Christmas Eve again, so here – again – is one of our “pet” wild magpies hanging out on the back deck on Christmas Eve and enjoying the music from The Nutcracker.
Our latest idiot cat. Hannibal, an overly friendly Burmese cat (all Burmese cats are super-affectionate) being looked after by our neighbour for a few months. If there’s anything higher than him, he MUST go to the top of it!
On this sunny winter afternoon in Canberra!
She is eighteen, totally blind, and almost totally deaf. And yet she insists on climbing the fence to get to our garden, climbing two flights of stairs to get to our deck, and snuffling around for possible chicken snacks every day.
Not great pictures, but you can see her blind eyes in the last one.
This little fellow moved into the garden recently, and hangs out most of the day. Most birds around here are in groups, but this is one of the loners. Very cute, though!
One year ago today since I took this video. It was Christmas Eve , and while we were in a big panic and trying to finish preparing food for Christmas, we had the ballet music from The Nutcracker playing. This silly magpie came to the back door and sat there every day for all the days leading up to Christmas. I only filmed at the end, which was silly, because I missed a lot of funny stuff! The stupid pose is very cute!
