Persimmons and Possums

Last week, I showed you the huge amount of fruit on the wild Persimmon tree in the back corner of our pasture.

Each of these fruits is about two inches in diameter.

There are thousands of them weighing down the branches of the tree.

With a bounty like this, I imagined that my game camera would capture photos of all kinds of wild critters feasting on the fallen fruit.  That's not been the case so far ... all I have to show is one lone Opossum.

Not many photos and only one 'possum is pretty disappointing for two weeks of waiting, I'm sorry to say.  Since most of the fruit is still on the tree, I'm going to leave the camera in this spot for a little while longer.  We'll hope that more critters show up when more of the fruit falls to the ground.


  1. I'm shocked you haven't seen more action, with a feast like that.

  2. I would think there would be a critter party under that tree!

  3. Good luck with that! Hope it happens soon for you.

  4. Wow that tree really is laden with fruit. It was neat to see the possum. The only time I see them is squished on the road.

  5. Wow, I had no idea you could take pictures at night like that. One possum is better than none I s'pose! :)
    Thanks for stopping by and visiting me. I appreciated it. Especially since I've been missing in action lately. Glad I'm not the only one that does that. :)

  6. Wow, a loaded native persimmon; so jealous! I love persimmons once they're on the ground and ripe.
