Alpaca therapy

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 2 July 2012 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Honeycomb's owner, Nils, was amazed to see such trust on first sight. As, I'm sure, was the man receiving Honeycomb’s attention!

This shot ends my day out with Honeycomb at the Farmers Market. It was a warm autumn day - full of warm and fuzzy feelings as well!

I think you got it perfectly right, they both appear to give each other identical looks
of surprise, almost as if Honeycomb is mimicking the look perfectly. Beautiful last
look at our great friend !~
