The alpacas and I got a treat yesterday dinner time, courtesy of the Red Arrows who must have been doing a display or practicing, somewhere near by.
However, how stupid am I?
I was sat in the fields with the girls, camera in hand with the intention of taking some more cria shots when the Red Arrows first flew over.
Whilst my eyes were glued to the sky for the half an hour or so they were there, watching them perform their amazing aerial acrobatics, just wishing I had my camera to hand to take some pictures.
Finally looking down on the last fly by, what was in my hand? my camera. What a dummy!
Two pictures was all I managed to take. What can I say? guess it was better than no pictures 🙂
Red Arrow display finally over I turned my attention and my camera lens back to the matter at hand, pictures of the cria with their moms.
Hopefully after all that excitement they were still up for smiling at the camera rather than being sprawled out fast asleep in the sun, as is the norm of late.
I was immediately presented with Diva’s rear end, and what was that poking out of it, a little nose.
The nose was quickly followed by the rest of the head and the two front legs.
The cria had a little wiggle and a look around at the world he was about to enter while his mother had a little rest and very soon after our latest cria dropped to the ground.
Love it when that happens 🙂
Dancing Diva, a maiden gave birth to a lovely little lad that we have called Milo. This is another cria sired by High Com, wasn’t he a busy boy last year 🙂
Mother and baby are doing fine, but I guess you just want me to shut up with the waffle and show you the pictures.
Meet Honeyfield Milo 🙂
