Another red panda thing!
It might look like I give high estimate to every picture that has a red panda on it, but it's not like that!
Your red panda pictures are very different from what I used to see. Your ability to capture the expression of the animal is just fantastic and should be appreciated!

To tell the truth, I spent hours looking at this cutie and.. the more I look at it, the more I like it. Your picture allow to see red pandas from a differen dimension.. different perspective, so to say.
This is a very outstanding photo!<3
