So I was out at night trying to get some complicated macro shots which were just not working out for me, when I heard some rustling in the trees. I shone my light up and saw a couple of possums munching on the leaves, high in the trees. I instantly knew what I wanted to shoot, getting it silhouetted against the moon. This meant that I had to quickly change lenses, set up tripod and get the shot before it move out of position, which was only a few minutes. Even though these things are a pest, I do like the shot.
