Llamas | by Big Grey Mare

We passed these llamas on our way to the lake yesterday, sharing their pasture with a small herd of buffalo. We decided to go to the lake first, and then take pictures of the animals on our way back. However, when we finally did get back, the buffalo had moved on, and only the llamas remained. It must have been suppertime, because I could see a woman with the buffalo, far at the end of the pasture, and the llamas were looking intently in that direction. I noticed their big feed tub, and decided to try standing in front of it. As soon as they saw me move toward the feed tub, they suddenly took a big interest in me, which allowed me to get a few shots of them. Of course, after a few minutes, they realized I wasn't coming up with any feed, so they turned their backs on me, and looked toward the woman and the buffalo again. I have to go back that way when it isn't suppertime. Of course, the moral of the story is TAKE THE SHOT WHEN YOU FIRST SEE IT! It may not be there when you return.
