|Cassie looking heart-breakingly cute|
As I've posited more than once on here: sometimes my shots are a result of waiting for hours in expectation of something great, and sometimes they are just a matter of dumb luck. Well, sometimes they require both in equal measures.

For anyone trying to work out how to tell them apart, here are a couple of photos of the two of them in the same frame. In the first one, Ralphie is on the left. He is much darker and redder than Cassie, the rings on his tail are far less pronounced, and he is smaller (the weight difference is actually much greater today than two years ago). In the second photo...well, let's see if you can work it out for yourself. There's a very big hint in the slightly blurry background!
I've another red panda photo from this past year that is so sweet I might not be able to keep it out of 2017's calendar. The competition, however, is very stiff indeed; only time will tell. I hope to have it finalized and an order placed before this week is out. I'll keep you all posted!
Next month: an animal I finally featured in a month other than December or January, with a shot taken with the use of a borrowed lens. Tune in then!
