Funi the panda

By ColleenA
I visited the Adelaide zoo this morning as I wanted to see the Giant Panda's from China. They are the only two Giant panda's in the Southern hemisphere. This is Funi.

I would like to thank HarrietH and Lynette (Lynniesefforts) for their UA's for my Angels Trumpet, much appreciated. I will endevour to catch up with all the images I have missed.
Have a nice day GrinGrin

Excellent captures of this furry fellow, Colleen. I especially like the one of him wading into the water in V2 Smile

Hope you're having nice weather in Adelaide. Summertime, isn't it? Hope it's not too hot! Should be dry, though Smile

Oh Colleen. Wonderful captures. After tigers, they are my second favourite animal, bears of any description. V3 for me, superb. You just want to cuddle it. Fabulous eye contact. I love, love it. Will have to have my UA tomorrow GrinGrinGrin

A very rare animal indeed. The Edinburgh pregnancy failed much to everybody's disappointment.
Great to see these pandas.
I have only seen one kangaroo from a distance an dsom edead ones at side of the road.
Hope you are enjoying your trip to Australia.
We've just had a rain storm and sounded like thunder but it's late evening.

What a beauty Colleen and so good looking. Fantastic captures.
V3 for best choice for me….WinkWinkWink..
They cost millions and sometimes they are only on load from China.
They have to go back into the breeding program it they are female…..
