Late 2019, I was lucky enough to get to China. In Beijing, we stopped at the Panda House, more because I felt we 'should' while we were there, I thought we'd tear in and out and move onto something more interesting. What I failed to realise was how delightful these animals are. 

Playful and agile when not eating, we watched mesmerised, having to be hustled along by our guide who knew how many more Pandas there were to see. The black rings are that, rings, that circle their body and they prefer solitude unless mating. 

The Chengdu Panda Reserve has a panda cam for anyone keen to watch them in action from afar.

This guy was on the streets of the bar and restaurant precinct in town.
