White llama in a field of sheep

LLamaToday is gray, cold and sullen–not ideal for a walk, but the countryside beckoned and the dog stared plaintively. At the end of my road, a flock of sheep showed vivid white against the withered brown hillside. I noticed a long-necked oddity lying aloof. At first, I thought it was one sheep standing behind another and seemingly fused by distance. Then it rose and stood, a white silhouette against a black forest of bare trees. A llama! (Alpaca?) Whatever it was, it was lovely, exotic, and definitely unexpected.
