    Wow excellent capture, what a wonderful joy to have a Panda so close by.

  • I’ve been meaning to visit earlier, but was caught up in a foreclosure situation. I plan on spending the summer there if time permits and trying to add to my collection. :) What would you like to see?

    Beautiful capture and detail, like the dappled light on him to

  • The crowds and the lines are awful, so I tend to stay offish. I’m actually right in the mist of a bunch of bamboo shooting though it w/ a 200-500 f5.6 Tamron lens. When the rest of the crowd spotted me we had a few adventurous persons come over to see from my unique vantage point.
