I photographed this butcherbird on my mother’s verandah—which is a deck if you’re not Australian—using her Nikon SLR. I don’t recall the model of camera, but it was before the digital SLR world took over from film.
Possums on the ground during the daytime are unusual. They are easier to photograph, but shouldn’t otherwise be seen this way. Photograph captured and possum captured as well—safely by local wildlife rescuers who restored the possum to health before releasing it back to the wild.
Photograph captured using a Canon PowerShot S2 IS.
