We went to Paignton Zoo yesterday. Smile

First of all we had to contend with the traffic, it was horrendous! It took us twice as long as out of season (we ought to have guessed it would be bad!). When we eventually got there, we were diverted to the overflow carpark - by this time we could see the queue to get in.................I have never seen it so long!!!

After parking we walked past the queue (I had thought ahead and bought our tickets on-line, this allowed us to walk straight in), trying not to hear the muttered comments coming from the folk who have waited so long!

Once inside it really was very busy, we missed a few areas because of queues (the crocodile house was especially bad - there were staff on the door to regulate how many went in!)

Because of the lovely weather most of the animals were out and active. Including this Red Panda. Their enclosure was cordoned off, so this was taken even further away then usual! Smile

After all that, we enjoyed the visit................but will make sure we never go there in the summer holidays again!

All that led to a picture that makes the Red Panda look like it's in its natural setting, Karen.
I like it.

I am loving the zoom on this little camera - this photo is as taken, no crop (just a re-size and sharpen for upload). Smile

A fine shot of this shy and often elusive beast, you did well to see him/her out in the open. They always go into hiding whenever I make a rare visit to the Cotswold Wildlife Park!
