Wang Wang & Funi

On Friday evening I was luck enough to be able to attend a special viewing of Wang Wang & Funi. For those of you who do not live in Adelaide Wang Wang & Funi are Pandas lent to our zoo hoping that they will breed as we all know they are in terrible danger of extinction. They arrived in November last year and have been very popular. They have just recently been able to go out into their out door enclosure due to quarantine.
Here are a FEW snaps.

This is Funi inside.
The inside photos do not work out very well because of the reflection off the glass.

We were really lucky as Wang Wang took himself outside for a stroll.

They are truly beautiful creatures and it would be a great same if we can not save them from extinction.
I will reduce the size of my header picture in a day or so as I know it is a pain when large photos take ages to down load.
I just couldn't resist it.

What wonderful photos! How lucky to be able to see them outside. I remember when Kellie was a baby, must have been about 21 years ago, Melbourne Zoo had two pandas on loan and we made a special trip down to see them. They were inside in their pens and were sleeping but it was still special. They are remarkable animals and I really hope they are saved from extinction. Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful pictures.

Lovely photos! I remember the pandas that visited Melbourne too, I must have only been about 5 at the time! They are gorgeous animals, though from what Ive read they dont seem too smart...

Your photography is superb. I want to go see them too but will wait til the crowds ease off a bit. Aren't they gorgeous?

Pandas are so adorable, I hope I can get to see them in real life too but for now your header picture will have to do!
