Lun Lun sleeping

The Giant Pandas are among the most popular animals at the Atlanta Zoo.  When they are inside, you get a great close-up view of the whole family, including the twins.  Unfortunately, the glass windows that let you see them is terrible for photography.  The reflections off the glass make it really hard to get a clear shot but I did get a couple.

This is Lun Lun, the adult female who was in the enclosure with her two cubs Ya Lun And Xi Lun.  The father, Yang Yang was in the next enclosure busily eating.  I would have much preferred to see them in a natural habitat but, you have to take what you can get.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
