About this book

This is a charming portfolio of panda images from multi-award winning photographer and former president of the Royal Photographic Society, Heather Angel.

Panda is a uniquely varied collection of pictures and a heart-warming tribute to an endangered animal whose charismatic appearance means it is loved the world over. Heather's passion for pandas is conveyed in beautiful colour photographs that show them throughout the seasons as they feed, drink, lounge, play, climb trees and even slide down snowy slopes. The images are accompanied by engaging and informative text giving an insight into the way of life of an iconic animal.
