Ringtail Possum Tuesday, photo of the Day – Wildlife

Shy at first, the possum started to move down, he hesitated, then with a little bit of coaxing from a piece of apple he gradually made his way to ground, scooped up his treasure and scampered off into another tree to enjoy his prize.

Swimming with a deadly stingray, Hamelin Bay, Western Australia

I couldn’t believe that I could be a metre away from a wild stingray. As I paddled in the shallows, it seemed to come towards me on each wave breaking on the shore.
