[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this little guy, an oppossum, running in my courtyard with his two older brothers. It seems their mother was no where to be found for three days so they all escaped and ventured out of their home from a window sill next door to find either their mom? or food...
I caught this little friend and placed him into a tree for his own safety as the cats that were running around would have had him for dinner. I also tried to catch one of his older brothers and about got my hand handed back to me without fingers. Big Smile, Bigger Teeth...
Anyway, I think this little friend of mine is curious and unafraid of me as he just layed in the tree until I left and watched my every move.
I had Velvia 50 Chrome film in my camera and no tripod so I had to use a fast shutter speed and low depth of field. I think it turned out just perfect...

Good POV and I think your camera settings were right for this one. Quite artistic shot.

Ah, cute! Lovely Shot of the little guy. The light falls nicely on your subject illuminating the focus point in the shot. Well caught!
