This is very very nice!!! I always felt nervous taking their pictures. I didn't know if they'd charge me several soles or if I was doing something taboo. What's exceptional about this pic is that you capture the colors of Cuzco well. Not just in the dress but in the rock, air, and color of the llamas. And who can resist a beautiful llama:)

Oh wow! Up close and front and center! Llamas are really fine animals. I think they spit, though...like giraffes. They look so dignified standing by those women dressed in beautifully-colored clothing and playing with that wee thing, which I assume is also a llama.

Charming Llamas and their keepers ! Why do they domesticate Llamas - for milk meat and wool ? Have a great week end.

Awesome photo! Wonderful capture of those Llamas and the baby is so cute :-)

There is so much to love about this unique scene: how well composed, the great colors and textures, and the amazing subjects. But what I will remark on, is how the stately llamas posed so proudly, like bookends, with little smiles on their faces!
