The flock of gray geese looked so appealing that I had to pull off the road to attempt a photograph. They quickly fled the corral, not from me, but from the sudden appearance of a big, ragged llama. He zeroed in on me, climbed up the gate a bit, and bared his teeth while issuing guttural threats. The only thing between me and death, he said, was this puny gate. Intrepid City Daily Photo Blogger that I am, I retreated only after getting the shots. I am free to photograph!, I said, as I leaped back into my little truck and hurried on my way.
