What a beautiful face ! At Christmas, when we think of the Three Wise Men, camels are traditionally depicted in the scene.
I've been following the holiday activities closely through the newspapers from the two communities that are close to my home. The bi-weekly paper had a rather large ad from the Lutheran Church, inviting the community to come on Sunday and "meet the animals of the nativity".
So, off I went on Sunday afternoon, with camera in hand.
It was set up on the front lawn of the church.
There was a bucket hanging on the fence, for a free-will offering, sponsoring the ELCA program of gifting a needy family with an animal. Please check out the link. This is a gift that can change a family's way of life.

Not exactly his best side....
What a great opportunity, for the children of my community, to walk in the pens with the smaller animals. It was obvious these little fellas were very tame.
As soon as I walked in, this little guy nuzzled up to me for attention.
Isn't he adorable ?
As I photographed, I became aware of all the spots.
And more spots.
Fluffy.... and looking so aloof.
Did someone suggest, to him, the grass taste better outside the fence ?
