Mallard moms new family. Little ones are growing fast. Hm, I thought it was the same family, I did only see one female and ducklings on that same spot.
It was nice seeing them as they seem to be scarce nowadays. Have not seen small ones like this in several years.

First image was taken with my phone that is why it is of lower quality. My camera was in the shop.

I and a friend paid a visit to the alpacas at Kusipacha Alpacas. We were welcomed by Madeleine who immediately got showed us what she had printed out from the file I sent her after the last visit. I was stunned. Never thought my image could be THAT LARGE :) I was allowed to bring it home and to share it on the next exhibition in November.

The alpacas were newly cut and looked quite skinny.

This happened in the southern island of Japan where it should be subtropic weather. But this day they had a snowstorm going on. First time in 100 years as we were told. The birds did not seem to mind.
