We haven’t walked since Monday, after I did the grocery shopping, but I only took the phone camera.  This particular walk was on the previous Monday. We headed off over the footbridge, along the service road towards town.

Wednesday Walk

I Googled, just now, searching for the difference between llamas and alpacas. I use the words interchangeably. Well, actually, I always exclaim in excitement ‘look, llamas’ before correcting myself. It’s because I’ve always had a thing for llamas, long before alpacas became a popular sight in our rural vistas. This pair live on a property, one lane over, near the forest behind us.

Llamas have long banana-shaped ears and alpacas have smaller, straight ears.

Well, there you go. Alpacas, then.

Thanks for looking. Stay safe.

Sometimes, kangaroos will stay put and just watch you. Other times, no matter how carefully or non-threatening you move, they will take off! I try to hide behind a tree when getting closer for a better photo, but you have to get out from behind it eventually.

It was a dull day yesterday, fog enshrouded until after midday so the forest was dull.

The sun started coming out as we neared home, but not helpful for these next shots. At the start of our walk, a much smaller group of kangaroos in this same spot didn’t bother moving. On our return, the flighty ones set off the rest.
