Day at the Zoo

leave a comment »

Dianne, Cara, and I went to Zoo Atlanta yesterday. We’d heard that you have to get there early if you want to even have a chance to see the new panda cub. So we changed from our original time of meeting at 10:00 to meeting at 9:00.

And sure enough, there’s Mei Lan, outside with her mother, Lun Lun. She’s only out for about 10 minutes, but at least we got to see her. Dianne shot some video, but I can’t upload it here. Instead, here’s one of the many still shots that she took.

Most of the other animals chose to stay inside where it was warm. I couldn’t help but shake the feeling that WE were the ones on display…with the animals staring at us crazy humans from their warm dens and such.

Anyway, it was a fun morning, despite the cold. I look forward to spring when Mei Lan is a little older and the weather’s a little nicer. You can check Mei Lan out on the panda cam from 10:00-5:00 Monday thru Friday.
