Alpacas make me LOL

Oh, how cute are alpacas? On our trip back from Novotel Forest Resort on the weekend, we had a bit of time to stop off at the Creswick Woollen Mills. Outside the mills, there was an inflation of alpacas sitting on the grass, munching away. I have never seen an alpaca up close before, so you can imagine the squeals of delight as I set sight on these amazing creatures.

These alpacas had recently been shorn and I noticed that some tufts of hair had been left on their faces, making them look so cute!! 


Did you know that the collective noun for a group of alpacas is known as an inflation?  I thought inflation referred to the increase in the cost of living. I prefer the "fluffy" type of inflation! 

Have you seen anything lately that has caught your attention, like these alpacas have for me? What was it? I'd love to know!
