Snack Time with Giant Pandas

The highlight of my visit to the National Zoo this weekend was getting to see giant pandas. I missed seeing the pandas at the San Diego Zoo in December due to the ridiculous long lines to enter the exhibit. So, I made a point of hanging around the one at the National Zoo to catch a glimpse of their giant pandas, Mei Xiang or Tian Tian.

Patience and persistence paid off and during snack time, I photographed both pandas enjoying their popsicle treats close to the enclosure's railing. I joined the throng of their delighted fans crowding the railings to get a better look. Not sure whether the panda in today's photograph is Mei Xiang or Tian Tian, but I enjoyed observing and photographing both of them during their snack break.
