Fun in the Rain

Species: Giant Panda | Location: Chengdu, China

On a trip with Nat Hab, the group was visiting the Chengdu Panda Reserve. Unfortunately, the weather conditions were terrible for humans. The dark clouds and heavy rains demanded the use of a high ISO. The pandas, however, were loving the cool, wet weather. They were very active and were climbing and feeding. Due to the weather the crowds were smaller than usual, enabling me to get a good position and shot.

About The Photographer

I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
