  1. What a marvellous photograph of such a splendid marsupial timed perfectly for the perigee moon! We here at the BBC have mammoth budgets to capture such rare moments, perhaps you could share your secrets Anne-Maree?

  4. A perigee moon is when the moon is at its closest point to earth. When it’s at its furthest point from earth it’s called an apogee moon.
