Quite dazzling! The possum doesnt seemed to be too frightened! Almost looks as though he/she is smiling! :)

DOF is well controlled, not easy either. Good light and balance for a shot under the canopy

The flash is a little too noticeable in the eyes and ears. Good subject though.

I'm a little distracted by the branches in the foreground...I think I would have preferred them to be cloned out (at least the one crossing his neck and claw). I also think composing (or cropping) this so that he's a little more to the right of the shot (and show more to the left since he's looking that way) would've worked better (especially since you've already cut off a lot of his body so you wouldn't be losing much).

interesting choice ... a pest in one country and protected in others.
