    I took these photos during our trip to Chengdu. Although it was a breeding research centre and not a natural reservation, we got to see many Pandas at very close distance.

    This panda was eating his lunch and had his back to us all the time.

    This is how panda has an afternoon nap, looking pretty comfy.

    They are used to seeing us tourists.

    ...and back to some more bamboo shoots.
