Title: Handsome Woolly Alpaca
I took this photo in Bend Oregon while visiting a sheep farm. This beautiful regale red head Alpaca was a guarding the sheep and lambs from coyotes. They look like a small little handsome woolly camel.
It is thought that the alpacas descended from the vicuña line and where domesticated as long as 7,000 years ago in the Andes Mountains in what would be part of Peru. Since alpacas aren’t that big they aren’t used as pack animals like llamas but are bred for their wool. The wool is used to make all kinds of warm clothing, blankets and bedding. The wool doesn’t repel water but it is very warm and silky, warmer than the wool from sheep.
Taken with Canon Mark II with a Canon 17-40 lens.
