Panda rescue mission!



Walking to the train station last week I spotted this panic-stuck little face staring into the oncoming traffic holding on for dear life :) in a grate at the side of the busy road.. snapped a shot and kept on walking. It was only later that this image struck a poignant note. Had he fallen out of a pram, a car, or while out on a bike ride with dad, was there a small child somewhere missing his/her panda bear? I actually looked the next time I passed by in the car, with all intent to recover.. it was gone, hopefully rescued and not squished down the drain! Can you tell I didn't get out and about yesterday :) Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

  9. Het is wel een hele moeilijke plek om een reddingactie te organiseren.

  10. Ah shame. My grandparents gave me a pair of pandas when I was born. I remember having them in the UK, but sadly they seem to have vanished somewhere between there and Rhodesia. Hope someone loves them. Diane

  18. Hey Grace - this is such a wonderful capture. I hope the Panda found its way out. PS If you friend is interested in our holiday apartment she can always make an enquiry direct through Melbourne Snaps if she wants. Cheers J&J.

  19. I knew they were an endangered species but did not realise that the situation was quite so desperate! I shall make a donation to the World Wildlife Fund immediately.

  24. I would have taken a picture and then rescued it :)
    That face looks, as if it made contact with some tires before :(
    Poor little thing, I hope it is now where it belongs to and not
