I went out to check on the llamas and brought back some pictures of the newborns for you. This little boy was born about 5 days ago.
This little boy was born two weeks ago. Compare him to the black cria and you can see how quickly they grow!
This little one (I think it's a girl but I couldn't be sure yet) was just born a few hours ago. Her mom has beautiful long hair like a Suri.
The aunties from last year came to check me out.
This little brown girl has unusual coloring for my herd, a lot like a vicuna. She reached out to say hi.
Here's the baby.
I took the dogs on a separate walk and we checked out the duck pond. I was trying to identify the ducks there.
We caught a glimpse of the owl again.
Here are some of the waterfowl. I identified Soras, ruddy ducks and redheads, but I know there are more by the calls they make.
The air is so fresh and because it is quite dry we have few mosquitoes now, which makes walking around a real pleasure. While I was in the woods I could smell something that reminded me of frankincense, a woody, sweet smell that is very evocative of mystery and antiquity. I remember buying frankincense once at a Greek store on the Danforth, where they sold nuggets of it for incense, in little jars by the cash register.
