Hmm, I don't think he quite accomplished his purpose!

Aisling said...

Joyce, Nope. He did hide that one little bit of his snout though. *grin*

oooh, he makes me shiver looking at him, he looks so cold. Happy New Year dear Aisling, hope your year is a wonderful one.

Aisling said...

Robbin, He does look cold! I'm sure he was, but I wasn't about to invite him in the front door (though he was just a few feet from it.)

Thank you. Happy New Year to you too!

hugs,
Aisling

Little Opie may have got weathered out of his own home and you did mention cat food was available. He may concider himself one lucky little critter during stressful times. Anyway he/she is a cute little animal person. Ma

What a great shot! May 2009 be full of blessings.

Nan said...

Not an animal we have around here at all. Great picture, Aisling.

Cloudhands (Mom!), Nan, Linda and Kathie,

Thanks for the comments! I sort of felt like I was terrorizing the little guy, snapping his photo (flash and all) but he was too cute to pass up.

Happy New Years to you all!

Poor little baby. I hope he found shelter. What am I saying? He's an opossum. We have rampant numbers of them here in rural Oklahoma. Still, he is really cute.

Happy New Year, Aisling. In my recap post, I linked to you.~~Dee

Dee,

lol! I felt sorry for him too, despite their "pest status." He looked sweet and vulnerable - as well as silly trying to hide under the shovel handle.

I'm going to go check out your blog post. :)

What a cute shot, Aisling! These guys are common in my neighborhood but they don't have to brave such severe weather conditions here.

Aisling said...

Rapunzel,

Yeah, it would be a giant shock to everyone if you had this kind of snow! *grin*

Thanks for letting me know you like this photo. I thought he was awfully cute.
