Rainy Day at the National Zoo

A few days ago, I woke up to ANOTHER rainy DC morning.  Not willing to let the rain get me down, I decided to take a trip to our National Zoo.  The zoo has been a popular topic this past week here in DC because of the red panda, Rusty's escape.  Theory has it that extraordinarily heavy rain helped the tall bamboo stalks to lean further than normal into the animal's enclosure.  He apparently used the leaning bamboo to climb out and escape.  Rusty was found a day later wandering the Adams Morgan section of town and is now back in his home.
