This cute alpaca lives at high altitude near Laguna Lagunillas (4714 m), an Andean Lake located half way between Chivay and Puno. The alpaca is an important part of Peruvian's lives, providing wool for clothing and food. Unlike llamas, they are not bred to be beasts of burden. Shepherds with large herds of alpacas are a common sight in this area. I named this guy Squishyface for obvious reasons. He liked getting his picture taken.

This landscape is beautiful, and Squishyface is definitely adorable! He looks like a giant stuffed animal, and seems very friendly, too. :-) I like the hills and mist in the background, and the light brown grasses that are covering the entire area. In my opinion, the photo is a bit dark, so I would personally add a bit of brightness, but it's a lovely photo.
I see that you are new to TE, so welcome! I hope you will also write more critiques. It will introduce you to more members. Have fun! :-)

I like the color of the grass and the mist.
This alpaca must be at least 4000 meters of altitude.
