Quite an agressive expression captured on this red panda (the light was much better on this visit to the zoo so I was quite pleased). We got to the enclosure and there was one red panda asleep hiiiiiiiiiiigh up in the tree and another in the middle of a smaller tree grooming himself. We waited around for a bit and luckily one of the keepers brought them in some food (some branches with fresh leaves on them – not sure what they were). I\’d chosen the best place to stand and wait as I had the perfect view. In this shot you can see his food to the right of the pic, not sure whether that detracts from him or not but I\’ve left in in regardless.
Quite happy with this pic, possibly a little darker than I\’d like but I\’m happy enough with it.
