Animal Portraits

I see the work of well known wildlife photographers (Moose Peterson et. al.) and think to myself, I know my way around the woods, if nothing else I’ve been hunting for 35+ years.  I can do that.

Well, no I can’t.  Finding animals in the wild is one thing,  getting good photographs of them is something else again.

It seems animals behind bars are more my speed.  I took this shot of a young alpaca who had been freshly shorn at the New Hampshire Sheep and Wool Festival a few months back.
