Opossum in the back yard!

I'm sitting at my desk merrily working away at the blogs when what should wander by for a drink but an opossum!
I grabbed the camera while eagerly telling the cats to look out the window.  Antares caught on right away and he stayed right where he was with his pupils like tiny slits.  Sentinel jumped down from the bed and started batting the camera strap around, completely ignoring the animal right outside the window.

It was pretty exciting.  Last year the opossums would come out very early in the morning and tear down the cornstalks early in the morning, but I've not seen any since.

I really didn't know that you "had them 'round your parts. We see them around here on occasion.
