A small dream of mine came true today: see a red panda in person. Except, I got to do even more than that — I got to be up close and personal with the two red pandas at the Henry Vilas Zoo as they chomped away on bamboo and bits of banana.
I love my job.
Although, I don’t know what is worse, trying to photograph babies or live animals. They are both uncooperative 99% of the time and photogenic moments are incredibly fleeting. Despite the difficulty of trying to get a good shot of these adorable creatures, I couldn’t stay mad at them very long. I mean, look at them…they are like living, breathing stuffed animals.
