I took this photo at the petting zoo at the Citrus County Fair in Florida. This little alpaca is standing beside a camel, whose fur is covered with wood chips from lying down in the pen. I loved the way the alpaca looked straight at me with those big brown eyes.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Awwww cute ! l want to give him a big hug !

  • Isn’t he just so cute? I didn’t pet him, though. I have bad allergies to animals. I just took some photos instead. I’ll put up a photo of the camel, too. Thanks, Trudi!!
