Went to Zoo Atlanta today to try out the new 100-400 i got yesterday.
As the animals were inside because of the heat (mid-high 90s), didn't get to use it much on the pandas. Also cause of the heat, the pandas were in their air conditioned dens behind glass, so was very challenging getting shots without reflections, and with fast enough shutter speeds.
Anyway here are the better shots from the time at the Pandas.

While this one has motion blur, I think its kind of fitting for a panda, as you could class it as how a panda spends it's day - sitting round eating.
How do you deal with places behind glass - most of the photos I took have pretty bad reflections - would like to know how to increase the keeper rate.
