alpaca 2

They make clothing from the fleece. They make me chuckle.

The one above has a rare blue eye. It was a little strange acting. It would come up to you for a kiss.
Here's a baby.

Well I have the answer to the previously photograph looking at the alpacas in this picture. I thought for a minute before I read your comments that this alpaca had just spit at you rather than coming up trying to get a kiss... the creature just has a wary look about it.

Their mouths are held in such a prim way. Then they have that fluffy bang of hair. Definitely funny.

There are a few places around here that raise alpaca and llamas. But I've never visited them. Too bad.

The OP looks great - and funny. Would only clone out the white bit on the top right.

According to the owners (and our experience) they are shy and harmless. They do not kick, spit, or anything much. Bianca, the blue eyed one, had the unusual desire to come close for a eye-to-eye look. She charged quickly over to inspect my camera and I nearly fell over backward, expecting to be soundly thrashed. the owner quickly calmed me, and I was told I need not back off. She is a lover not a fighter. 8-)

Well I wouldn't want a lover (as you say) with a hairy face like that, despite the charming blue eyes!
Just that little white bit of sky needing attention.

Awwww, Bianca's in love with or your camera. ;0) You must go back and visit her..don't just leave her in the lurch, now Rick.
The one in comments looks a tad Cro-Magnon!
