It’s been a wonderfully, glorious and beautiful pre-spring day today. Heading down to Washington DC for a visit to the Smithsonian National Zoological Park for a Feathered Friends meetup, two Giant Panda Bears were out in the warming sun enjoying a bamboo breakfast.
How could I not stop to enjoy them having breakfast. Needless to say, I got into a little bit of hot water as I was tardy in meeting the small group. Luckily one smart person thought to call me and I asked them to come to the Panda pen to catch this photo op.
The day was fantastic, with all sorts of wonderful things that happened. I’ll just leave you with these cute and cuddly bears for tonight.
They are sooooo cute! you caught it perfect! 😀
Thanks Andy ! It was evidently quite a special thing to have her so close. One guy said he goes every weekend for the past six years and have seen them this close only two other times. Amazing huh?
Great timing! 🙂 🙂
Reblogged this on The Wandering Poet and commented:
Cute and as always fantastic captures 🙂
You are too sweet to share this with your readers. Thanks Andy!
Thank YOU! It was too cute to not share 😀
My son trained here. He loved it!
Oh lucky man your son is. It really is a super place. Thanks Cindy.
I hope that the Meet Up group forgave you once they saw how cute the pandas were!
I think they did, it ended up being a super great day. Wish you could have been there.
That’s literally one laid-back Panda bear. Thanks for all the favourites on Flickr btw…..I don’t post much on there, but I suppose I should use it a bit more 😊
I love Flickr as it’s so easy to look at and upload to. Great place to keep your pics organized before placing them in an official website/portfolio. 🙂
Fabulous! I love all that mess on his belly: how decadent! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
That was my favorite part. Their discards left on their belly. She would strip the bamboo and chew the sweetest part.
So Cute!!! Wonderful shots!!!
Thank you so much Rexlin.
Love Your Captures – Enjoy Watching Pandas:)
Aren’t they awesome ! I’d love to cuddle with one of them.
YAY! I love pandas so much! HAHA! Very cute 😀
That’s wonderful ! So happy I had these that I could share with you. Appreciate your visit and comment. Bella
SOOO much character all I could do was laugh and smile. I love it, he looks like a person in a costume…or is he a bear pretending to be a person in a bear costume…? I too love the mess he’s making.
I was going to say that he makes Bamboo look yummy but then I realized he just made my mouth dry out like chewing on a mouth full of sunflower seeds!
