Be kindly affectioned one to another...Romans 12: 10

I couldn't help but notice how in awe this child was with the llama at the County fair and how fascinated they both were with each other...Of course it required standing behind the llama with my camera to capture the expression on this boys face and to also catch the rapt attention of the llama at the same time in regards to the boy..

Update: 1-25-2013 I need to make a correction...This animal happens to be an Alpaca and not a Llama which I first assumed...Although there are similarities, the Alpaca has a longer neck, softer inner coat and not as large as the Llama which has a coarser coat. I wondered after I saw the grooming and the shape of the head it didn't quite look like a llama and so I did a research and I stand corrected:)

Thank you so much Ronnie Ginnever for the generous spotlight! Very much appreciated!

    Thank you all so much for your kind words and faves...I wondered also Ann about the grooming which prompted me to do a research and learned this creature is an Alpaca and not
    a Llama...They had both Llamas and Alpacas at the fair in pens that year and there is a difference in the two although there are some similarities.

    I LOVE that you took this from the back rather than the front, and of course were able to capture the child's expression. A unique the head of hair!!
