I looked out my window and lo and behold there was a possum mom carrying 10 babies on its back. I was so excited

I am writing a childrens's book and the picture would fit the story perfectly. Is there any way I could get the license? Sincerely, M.P. Mahoney e-mail; rocher@frontiernet.net

that is toooo cuuute, Janice! Thought I'd commented earlier, but guess not. love some of the comments too, lol. I'd say that's a prize winning photo. I'd have been excited too. My sister recently looked out her kitchen window and saw 7 SKUNK babies on her lawn, LOL.

It was so funny I was talking to my landlord and I said Oh my God I got to go and hung up on him and grabbed the camera and ran into my yard and when I got back in he had called to see what happened so I told him and made a photo for him. It was very hot and humid that morning. Mama possum looks as if she wants me to take some of those babies. No way.

What a wonderful picture!!! And, my goodness, the memories it brings back. I seem to see some possum babies on walk with their mother - a scene from long ago!! I was so happy to get to see some possum babies again. Bringing my walk right to me. *g* A picture to treasure!!! Really great!!

Wow, what a great shot. Lucky you had a camera handy. I had a baby possum get into my house one time and cared for it for about a month. It ate cat food, but I never tried to touch it. I released it one night in a nearby park.
