Tumbling Pandas

The pandas were out at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. These are the proud parents as of July 9, 2005 of a new cub. While it is blurry, it still one of my favorites of them, as they were repeatedly walking up to each other and pushing each other over. When they roll, they always stuck their legs out and their feet were flattened as you can see in this image. I am not one to sentimentalize animal behavior, but I found this absolutely charming.
