This Northern Pygmy Owl, the smallest owl in Alberta, has been quite a sensation in a local park. They are the size of a pop can but are ferocious hunters and can capture prey up to twice their size. Seen in Fish Creek Provincial Park, Calgary, Alberta.

Many thanks for your visit and comments. They are very much appreciated.

The alpaca (Vicugna pacos) is a species of South American camelid. It is similar to, and often confused with, the llama. However, alpacas are often noticeably smaller than llamas. The two animals are closely related and can successfully cross-breed. Alpacas and llamas are also closely related to the vicuña, which is believed to be the alpaca's wild ancestor, and to the guanaco. There are two breeds of alpaca: the Suri alpaca and the Huacaya alpaca. Alpacas are kept in herds that graze on the level heights of the Andes of Southern Peru, Western Bolivia, Ecuador, and Northern Chile at an altitude of 3,500 m to 5,000 m above sea level. Alpacas are considerably smaller than llamas, and unlike llamas, they were not bred to be working animals but were bred specifically for their fiber. Alpaca fiber is used for making knitted and woven items, similar to sheep's wool. These items include blankets, sweaters, hats, gloves, scarves, a wide variety of textiles and ponchos in South America, and sweaters, socks, coats and bedding in other parts of the world. 20210124_102215

This beautiful Egret was eating when I surprised him and his head shot up not three feet from me. Luckily I was carrying a camera...
