This is fairly ordinary as far as photographs go… But the subject!!
Have you ever seen a Brush-tailed Phascogale in the wild? (Probably not, right? They are nocturnal AND listed as threatened.) Tonight was a first for me. Considering how many years I’ve explored the bush pointing lights and cameras at nocturnal creatures without ever meeting a Phascogale, it’s staggering that I saw two. Yes. Two in one night. I can only hope they found each other.
Oh. And if you think I am excited about something that looks much like a rat or mouse, see the apparent black break in the tree limb behind him? It’s actually his super-fluffy tail! Cute as pie.
