Favourite Photo Friday – 27/11/15

There has definitely been a lack of posting lately, and I haven’t done a photo Friday in awhile! I actually have a few quite a few images from the last couple of weeks to share but am mid-way through a blog upgrade, a million preparations for our trip and all the end of year celebrations and catch-ups.

In the meantime, I’ll quickly share a few images and try for some posts next week! Last weekend the alpacas got shorn (timely after some 36 degree days) so I’ll be posting about that soon. Here is full fluff picture of Chimu, very cute with his big woolly coat. Which given the changeable weather has kept in him warm in the 10 degree and raining days, but made him very unhappy on the 36 degree days….

The alpacas are not fans of the shearing process.  I do love this shot of Inti, being de-fleeced. It was a very warm and sunny Saturday afternoon, and that is not grot on my lens, it’s all his fleece flying in the air like snow!

There was also a late-afternoon game of hide and seek across the road in forest.  These are two of my favourite shots of the kids. It was very warm but they were happy to run and hide, and did not want to come home for showers and bed!  I’ll post more of these shots soon….
