"1 day old Alpaca" shots....
Camera: K3 and K5II Photo Location: Hindmarsh Island, Australia 
Posted By: noelpolar, 12-13-2015, 09:34 PM

Some "1 day old Alpaca" shots.... invited to a friends who breeds Alpacas on Hindmarsh Island..... he's an ex Canon shooter who now has a Sony ARII and is buying the sony lenses bit by bit. Anyway.... couldn't make the birth yesterday so 1 day old it is....K3 shots.... mostly I like the flexibility of my Sigma 70-200/2.8 for this sought of thing..... but took a couple of fisheye shots.....seemed a square crop kind of day!

Horseradish, mustard, mint sauce, what do you eat with one of these?

And yes I could probably manage a whole one.

What a cute little one. Mom's hair looks like it has already been knitted into a sweater in the second shot.

Ok admit it... no one know the answer then.

I will just have to embarrass myself, next time I'm at the restaurant.

I have no idea.....don't think I have ever heard of, or seen, Alpaca on the menu. As far as I know they are kept for fibre production, not food.....but then again, I have been wrong before.
