Panda Bears are a big draw at the San Diego Zoo, they have their own exhibit which requires only a certain amount of people in at a time. This creates a bit of a traffic jam but people are generally considerate and stick around for a reasonable amount of time to watch the Pandas.

Luckily for us we caught him when he was feeding and it was quite a treat see him interact with his food (I’m also including a small 18 second video clip of him eating his bamboo sticks :))

Here is the only head on shot I could get, since he was leaning on the rock while feeding; the closest point would be a sideway shot like the above

And here is the little 18 second video

    • They are adorable; however they were larger than what I expected! Too bad they’re not in the wild so we can see you go undercover and shoot them πŸ™‚

    • They are very peaceful but my understanding they are still dangerous in the wild
