On a trip to the San Diego Zoo, I had the opportunity to view the zoo's baby panda, which I believe is the only surviving panda baby in the West. She and her mother were playing inside a wooden shelter. I waited in a looooong line and only had a few seconds to snap some shots. This is my favorite because of the very human embrace.

Thanks to share such a great picture with us!
It really seems that the mother wants to hold her daughter.

I understand that we should all embrace what is good for us. However we desire and embrace what is bad for us...
