For years I’ve been trying to capture an image of a red panda. I was at the zoo for a birthday celebration at the San Francisco zoo and the weather was really drab. It was chilly, windy, and drizzling off and on. There weren’t that many people there, because of course, that’s the type of weather that keeps us at home. However, the animals were enjoying the weather and it was a great day for capturing them in action. I was thrilled to see their red pandas climbing about and active! While this isn’t the most compelling image I’ve ever taken, I feel victorious at reaching my red panda goal!
