Camera Critters #21


She's baaaaaaaack! We actually see her just about every night. Daughter has named her Margaret Evangaline. So now every time we see her we say, "Hi, Margaret." She just stares back. It still gives me the willies.

Those eyes glowing at me from across the yard would give me the willies too! They really look like rats from this distance don't they?

Have a wonderful weekend!

ewwww! I'll never forget finding a possum in my trash can a long time ago when I was living alone. I dreamed possums were going to get in the house. My mom has had them in the garage, and they can be mean, so stay clear! Have you heard it hiss?

Hehehehe - I love her name! When you tell me you invited her in for coffee, I'm gonna get a little worried. hehe

I can see why it gives you the willies. Margaret is a little creepy.

Is that a big mouse?

Patois said...

Dang, she looks like a vampire possum. I'd be totally startled to run into Margaret. Okay, I'd be scared to death.

TexasTanya said...

Oh yes, she's sorta creepy! If you have to have a visitor, I think I like my lizard better than your possum. (shivers)

Also, just wanted to let you know that you've won something on my blog (www.texastanya.net)!

I am finishing my rounds on camera critters. Very nice photo. On my walk the other day in the wildlife refuge here I saw just the head of one of these guys. As mean as they can be I still think I would rather see the whole thing alive and kicking as opposed to being dead and destroyed.
