Counting Sheep

Family portraits of the four legged variety?

It was instant love as soon as I saw them. In that second picture, do you see how the shaved one is hiding behind the one still sporting his wool coat? I think he was feeling a bit naked... a bit vulnerable. A bit camera shy. I can't blame him. But I adore him, nonetheless, and found him to be just as photogenic as his next of kin.

And the llamas. All standing there, perfectly posed as though they knew they were getting their family portrait done. And just like humans... getting the littlest one to look at the camera was just not going to happen. At least he was doing better than that guy in the distance, who was having nothing to do with this portrait business! There's always a difficult one in the crowd.


  1. Love this . . . thanks for making me smile this morning.

  2. oh!!!! OH! these are fabulous!!! love, love, love!

  3. Oh..the llamas!! I just love this. Lucky you to have come across this scene.

  4. So cute. So cute. We were in Portland visiting family. We drove south into the Oregon Wine country. I ran across a field of llamas. I pulled over the car and photographed them. They were so curious about me and stared rather quirkily at me. I laughed each time they munched on their hay because their jaws moved sideways so goofily. First time I had seen llamas. I left the trip continuing to fall madly in love with Oregon. We're really struggling with being in Houston and are trying to figure out a plan...
