The panda bear research station, just north of Chengdu, (in Sichuan) is best visited early morning, at 8 am, when the pandas are fed bamboo shoots. This is a pair of cubs, who desperately need a bath!

Those or their ancestor in Pekin's zoo, are the most celeb in the wold, and even here in my village in Brittany everybody have heard from their love story (or reproduction story).
I like the title , and also the "desperatly need a bath" for these charming (and mays be heavy) animals.

Well captured, it looks so natural you wouldn't think they were in captivity. Well done!

Great shot Chris! This looks almost like a painting, with their fur giving a fuzzy appearance. I like the way you caught the moment, and the positioning of the bears. Superb!

Hi Chris. Yes they sure do need a bath! The Smithsonian zoo recently had a cub born too. Nice capture of this moment between them and it does give us a clear view on both faces. Nice shot Chris.

You gotta to love this guys! You have captured them in a great pose. There seems to be a problem with the definition, I see some distortion. But the other seem to find that there is no problem. Maybe it's on my end.
Great shot anyway.

Hi Chris, cleverly titled and lovely, this nice juxtaposition of these indeed a bit scraggy pandas. Lovely natural graphism!
Have a nice day.

The position of Pandas and your perspective make of this capture and moment a Yin-Yang image. Fine colors and good close-up approach.
Very well seen and composed.

Hi Chris, You have done a great job in shooting the action of the couple playing. I like the tight crop composition to focus on the two pandas. You have captured a very nice moment to have the up and down position,. A very well taken picture with nice clarity and sharpness.

original view here, of those two pandas.
and the ying and yang image is very funny and true.

Like everyone else I love those guys! Nice composition... and you're right, probably not quite clean here! After all, it's playtime!
