A few of my favourite things..

Hello Little Puffy Tail..

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.
