Night of the opossum

I found this young wild opossum in an apple tree in our orchard in rural Douglas County near Kellogg, Ore., early on Sunday, Oct. 10, 2010.  Growing to about the size of a large house cat the Virginia opossums of North America are commonly called possums.  Opossums, which are marsupial, were once a favorite game animal in the United States.
