Alpaca

As I walked out on a lovely Spring morning last week, these were across the footpath, and not keen to move.

My postings might be a bit spasmodic over the next month or so, as a lot is happening here

I love these guys! Aren't they adorable!!
You take care of yourself, and we'll just be overjoyed when we hear from you! smile
Lisl: Hope I can post more than I think, Elizabeth, thank you
Oh-Oh-Oh. Your alpacas and our sheep would have a heyday meeting out on the footpath, Lisl. grin
Lisl: They certainly would, Ginnie!

Na, this is a special experience to meet such a lot of alpacas early in the morning - they look a bit exotic to English and European eyes!
Lisl: Normally they would be in their own fields, but here they were fenced on a stretch of footpath

I am glad that you took there portrait Lisl, from that distance.
I know these fellas can spit like crazy... you would not want that in your face. There are many youtubes on the internet showing how 'suddenly angry' they become. People often forget, these are NO pets....
Please take care of yourself, we'll meet soon smile
Lisl: I had to be careful as I was leading the walk for a dozen others. We were quite cautious, Astrid - there was one particular male who looked a bit put-out. Fortunately there was a stile to the right of them, and we bundled over it quickly

I'm not sure if these things are friendly or not Lisl
Lisl: Neither was I, Chris, but all they did was look in the end
They are very appealing animals and I think they are friendly!
Lisl: I didn't stay to find out, Bill
Beautiful light in this shot Elisabeth and the Alpacas are adorable...they look ready for a trim smile
Lisl: They were very pretty, but one was a little menacing. The early morning light was good that day, thank you
I love alpacas except when they spit at you. They always seem to have a smile.
Lisl: These didn't get close enough to spit, or perhaps they wouldn't have anyway
They have a nice sweater on...
Lisl: They will be hot today - the temperature rose quite a bit

Thought these were poodles in the thumb
Lisl: I thought they were llamas at first
Very attractive characters aren't they.
Lisl: They were enchatnting, Brian - at a distance!
wow....must be chuffed seeing this Lisl! great shot... looking forward to more
Lisl: It was an interesting walk, Aderonke - more pics another day

English sheep looks funny. Longer necks, than ours.
Lisl: That is so they can see over our hedgerows, Louis

Did they chase you, Lisl?

Are long-neck sheep common in England?
Lisl: They didn't get a chance - we were away over the stile as quickly as possible. The long necks in sheep have developed over the centuries as our hedges have become higher!
i think that is because most of them have their eyes blocked and cannot make out which way to go smile
Lisl: They must have had a problem, Ayush
Don't they know humans have the right of way! smile
Lisl: They couldn't care, Larry......
Lucky you to see this scene on your walk. Don't they look so cuddly too?
Lisl: I was pleased to see them and got my camera out when quite a long way away!
Spasmodic is good Lisl... considering how proud we are to be part of what's happening next month... i am having a hard time keeping three pictures in the queue right nowgrin
....petersmile
Lisl: I know - so much to do and think about, Peter, both for travellers and we stay-at-homes
They don't look friendly Lisl! Great capture.
Lisl: Thank you, Richard
