The photographer: Marshall Wilkins of Granite Bay
Behind the lens: We spent four weeks traveling around China, Mongolia and Tibet in September. We snapped this picture of a 2-year-old panda at the Giant Panda Breeding Center in Chengdu, China. The center successfully breeds pandas and rescues orphaned and starving pandas. We enjoyed an intimate, up-close view of these solitary animals.
