Nikon D3 70-200 vr

A lucky catch early one morning a couple of weeks ago during a hailstorm.

One of our two alpacas ,Wal just dropped and deceided to sit it out.They usually run for the cover of the trees or shed.They are both sporting two year old coats and will be shorn early this summer so they are having a reasonably comfortable winter ,
which is a unusually cold and wet one this year.

hope some enjoy

cheers
Ralph

    I love the plump body, his/her thick coat, the look on the face and the snow falling looks so ethereal, almost like little fairy lights, just lovely :)
