Doing Wildlife photography takes time, patience and most of all love, love for nature and animals. This cute red panda photo set, was taken in a zoo. Unlike many animals I have seen, pandas seemed to be happy in their habitat. They were roaming around, running through the grass and eating bamboo leaves attached to the trunks in their enclosure.
This zoo has a high, thick glass wall around the panda enclosure and taking photos through the glass was not the option due to lot of stains and spots on it. In order to take the shot, I had to hold the camera as high as I could, sometimes standing on the tip of my toes. Luckily, at the time, I was using very light telephoto 80-300mm lense.
One of my favourite is the photo (below) of the panda sunbathing on the tree trunk. He was set down, while leaning on one of the brunches next to him. His beautiful fur was so shiny that the photo appears over exposed.
The last, but not the least, although already included in the previous post, the photo of panda hiding in the grass.
Thank you for stopping by my little artistic haven. 🙂
