Panda on a Perch

A Red Panda in this case.  This panda definitely rates high on the “awww” scale, I think it is the fact that it’s fur looks so soft:

ISO 400 f/5.6 1/50 135mm

The toughest part of getting this photo, is actually being able to see the animal, it likes to hang out in remote parts of its enclosure.  Not a whole lot I can do about that.  I think next time, I will shoot in full manual mode, try to get the shutter speed a bit faster.  I am also thinking I should have tried a higher ISO.  I think I will also try getting a shot with the flash on, I’m thinking that might have helped fill in the darker parts of the panda’s fir.
