Went to see them last week ... great big queues. Are only allowed in for 10 minutes and no flash allowed. You are also behind fingerprint smeared glass and can only shoot what the pandas are doing in your 10 minutes with all the other 46 people getting in the way.

Who is looking at who ?

brilliant, we are going to go later on in the year.
i know what you mean about loads of people getting in the way, we went to the national rail museum at york on friday and it was heaving probably because the train out of the harry potter films was there.

Well done; shooting through "zoo glass" is no mean feat ;)
