Peru - Machu Picchu Ruins - III


  Andrys Basten, photos taken 5/23-24 , 1997 (Click to enlarge)



    (124k)     My search for another llama     Travel partner, M.A. Campbell, using a telephoto, which optimizes focus for main-subject distance, took this shot of me heading toward my camera prey though you can see only the orange coat of the llama for now.

    Behind the llama's back is the Temple of the Sun (semi-circular) and beyond that is the replaced thatched roof of the House of the Caretaker of the Fountains.



(125k) The llama in charge



    I got the sense that this particular llama was in charge here.
