Tieck in the sun





The sunset the other day was nice.


Then Tieck had to get involved.

Insisted on being the center of attention, too.

Then another llama wandered up. Tieck didn't like that so much. Note the slightly elevated nose, and the half-cocked ears. That was just a warning, and the other llama wandered off again. If the nose was way up, and the ears straight back, that would have been a threat. A sign for me to get out of the way too, she might spit (at the other llama, but there is often collateral damage.)

I moved position anyway and took another photo.

I'll end with a quick Mom story. I was in the living room knitting on a sock, and Mom was puttering around in the kitchen. It sounded like she was dragging something heavy across the floor, so I called out, "Mom, what are you doing?" Now usually when someone is doing something they shouldn't be, and has to answer the question, you usually hear "Nothing" with a rising inflection at the end. Mom, in her most innocent voice, says, "Something." She cracks me up.

Beautiful pictures of the sunset and pissy llama! The Mom story justs reinforces my original opinion of her. She had and has a wicked sense of humor.

I didn't know a llama's penis was on it's head. Blogging is so educational.

Lily! I'm laughing so hard I am crying. I had to go back and look because I had no idea what you were talking about. You're right though.
