Not Quite Nothing

Things have been a bit hectic here lately--or they’ve felt hectic, anyway--and so I haven’t gotten around to going through my photos or my impressions of the adorable, six-months-old red panda cubs at the zoo. I will simply say that: the one tricky thing when watching these two sisters in the enclosure with their parents is that the adult red pandas are so cute themselves, and the cubs are so well-grown, that it’s hard to distinguish one from the other. The cubs have puffier faces, though, like those of big, red, masked teddy bears, while their parents are a bit sleeker—more like fox-bears than bear-bears. Perhaps the photo below will help—the mother is in the lower left and one of her cubs is in the upper right corner:

That's all for now, folks.

How can they be sooooo cute and not want to admire themselves in the mirror all day?
