18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
An alpaca after winter haircut

An alpaca stares out as he relaxes in the barn trying to escape the hot sun. It's the first week they've had contact with visitors since last season as they are left alone during the colder months. He's spent the day outside being pet and fed by visitors. He finds solace as the end of the day nears.
