Chengdu, December 28th 2011

When I returned to my hostel, the staff asked me, "How was it? Did you get to see the pandas?"

"Oh yes, I did!" I answered excitedly. "The pandas were outside the whole day long. Until I left at about four, the pandas were still outside."

"Oh really? You are very lucky then!"

Yes, I was lucky indeed. I didn't just meet pandas with an 'S'. I got a huge chance to capture them in every stage of their life: from childhood to adulthood. Here there are!!

Childhood

In previous post I've already written and showed a lot about the baby pandas. But... I still have some more:

"I want to get down. But that looks pretty scary... " Little Panda thinks to himself.

What a bundle of joy! Don't you think so?

Teenager

"How shall I tell her that I love her? Hmmm..."

"Ooops! I have fallen in love!"

"What did you say? You said you love me??"

"Someone please rescue me!!"

Adulthood

Sober, less cute. That spells adult.

One thing is sure not to change: The fondness of bamboo.

This panda walked very closed to me, sat in front of me for a few seconds, pointed its eye to my lens, made a pose, and then continued to walk away. There was nobody else beside me at that time. Panda clearly stopped just to make a pose for me! 谢谢熊猫!

I had planned that I would stay until the pandas retrieve to their pens. On the contrary, many times I said to myself, "Okay, it's time to go back to the hostel." and at that many times I would see one two visitor standing by the fence either cheering or photographing. There were pandas! What a deep contrary to my experience 15 months ago! Eventually, I had to leave the pandas, because I had a night train to Wuhan to catch.
