I was wrapping up a four-hour-long video shoot with Rebekah Poling, the volunteer director for the Nelson Children’s Center, with a tour of the new Educational Resource Center. We had already done about eight interrupted takes, due to planes flying overhead and loud 18-wheelers whizzing by in the background. We were both tired and ready to finish this video, which would hopefully be good enough to show at our upcoming event, the Caring for Kids Benefit.In the middle of our ninth take, I noticed something in the background, ruining my shot. A rather large critter was making its way across the play yard… a possum (or opossum?) was running amuck. Aren’t they supposed to be shy? And nocturnal?Of course, Rebekah could not miss this opportunity to show off her possum-herding expertise. Who knows, she may have a career in wildlife management yet!
