Endless thanks to the shy, Austrian Pony Pal™ who alerted me to this absolutely fantastic event! What the caption doesn't tell you is that mighty Ursula, reportedly, is the baby panda's Godmother! Ursula Plassnik... adorable baby pandas... seriously, does it get any better than this? And are you noticing that Ursula is wittily dressed in black and white in honor of the delightful creatures? Her outfit is fabulous. Here another, from the zoo's site:
And I bet I can find more, too! Stay tuned!

I like how the panda lady wore a scarf, obviously a tribute to Ursula.
