This little fellow was quite fast, and always on the move.

This Red Panda image is for sale on RedBubble and looks great framed.

  • Panorama Paul said:
    A Red Panda...? Now this is something new to me...? I suppose they are even more endangered than the B&W Pandas?
  • Ananda Niyogi said:
    oh wow!! these guys are so rare....where did you manage to frame this?
    Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)
  • David de Groot said:
    Yeah, very cute :)
    Thanks :)
    He was quite expressive, that's for sure.
    Could be... could be...
    Yes Paul, I think they are more endangered than the standard ones (I could be wrong though).
    Alas, in a zoo. There are no wild Red Pandas in Australia.

  • David de Groot said:
    Just my natural charm I presume ;-)
    Well then, Happy Birthday Voodoo :)
    'twas a good day at the zoo - nice overcast conditions for even light.

    very nice :D The detail is fantastic :D
  • David de Groot said:
    Those heavy white lenses have to be good for something ;-)
  • batch2008 said:
    I like this shot to David. The trick to taking a good shot at the zoo is that it doesn't look like it's been taken at the zoo.
  • David de Groot said:
    Indeed - and Taronga is fairly well suited for that.
  • -Gadabout- said:
    How heavy are they? Are they a one or a two brick equivalent? Me thinks the detail is worth every bit of effort involved in hauling the brick lens around :D Then again, I've seen a pic of your backpack - it's crazy ! How many kg do you carry around at any one time?
  • David de Groot said:
    The 70-200 is 1.5kg, the 1.4x tc another 200g. I also had the Sigma 10-20 in the pack, 610G. Johnno's 300/2.8L I used for a couple of shots is 2.55kg.
    I've not actually worked out how heavy the bag is usually, and obviously I don't carry everything in it all the time (it doesn't all fit for starters).
