19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Surrounded by alpacas

The alpacas are a little skittish. But, if you make yourself smaller than them, they start to accept you and not be scared of you. My daughter knelt down to get them to accept her, but that worked too well! They start coming over and giving her face kisses, so she started to shield her face from their oncoming heads.
