Panda!

Panda Washington DC Zoo 2006
In July of 2006 my husband and I were able to take our children to see the National Zoo in Washington DC.  One of the Pandas was active and visible that day, and I got some nice photos.

One of the Panda's even climbed a tree, went out on a limb, and slipped down under the branch.  A visitor told me we were lucky to see a panda in action, usually they are hard to see.

I saw the Pandas at the National Zoo too! But it was years ago and my photos were not nearly as nice. Great job.

I love Pandas and was fortunate to visit the National zoo and see them there. Wonderful mosaic and a reminder to me of wonderful memories.

You were fortunate to see a panda active during the day and we are lucky you shared your photos with us.
They look so cuddly.
