He Is In There (look carefully) and  Opossum in Tree

This afternoon Kristy and I had to stop the truck for a very large whitetail buck that was standing in the road. Had he remained in place long enough on the road I would have been able to shoot a picture or two of the buck in clear view. Unfortunately, the buck crossed in front of us to run into the timber where he stood nearly stationary. He may have been immobile for a couple of reasons… first – he had trouble even getting into the brush with his wide rack, second – he likely knows how hard he is to see once inside the heavy cover.     

Here is a picture of the big buck in the timber. Can you see him? Hint – He was walking away from us.

A couple of miles from the big buck Kristy spotted an opossum along the edge of the road. When I jumped out to shoot photos, the ‘possum climbed high in a tree to look down on me.
