From time to time, the fork of the Macadamia tree becomes home to not one, but two coppery brush-tailed possums. One of them is the felonious creature that attempts to break into the house nightly via the flue on the wood heater. I suspect that it does not plan to leave Christmas presents. Not the sort that you might want, anyway.
The problem with sharing a tree fork is that it can be a trifle cosy. Which is fine in winter, but not so delightful in the middle of a tropical summer.

|You think you've got problems.|
— oOo —
And while we're on the subject of sharing, the green tree frog has returned. I do like frogs, but would prefer that this one did not use the toilet as a swimming pool and the sink as a toilet. Still, bathroom fixtures are the natural habitat of the green tree frog. The species was unknown in Australia prior to the invention of indoor plumbing.
