This sweet guy was brought out to help educate people and for people to really see a possum up close and personal. He moved around quite a bit but sometimes he did stop long enough for me to snap a few nice shots of him.
On the 28th, the same day that Master Secretary Thomas Cromwell was executed, Henry VIII married his “rose without a thorn”, young Katherine Howard, at Oatlands Palace.
The historian Agnes Strickland writes of how “the king had exhausted his treasury when he married his Flemish bride [Anne of Cleves], so he could not honour Katharine Howard with either a coronation or a marriage festival.“
I’m pretty sure that’s what this guy here is. He and his lady friend were having a good time on the side of the path. I hardly ever see snakes at all and on this one trip I saw three separate wild ones.
