On the 23, my Alpaca Usha had a little baby. In the spirit of the season, we've named him Leon (Noel backwards). Here are a couple of pics!

All taken with the K100D and 18-55

My Aunt and Leon
My aunt has some friends who just love seeing her with the Alpacas (they think they're the greatest things ever) so this was necessary

Aaah - what a cutie! Mom doesn't seem to mind everyone handling him, and he is darling. Are you going to keep him?

Yes, we will be keeping him (my mom checks on him every 2 hours or so, so I think she's hooked). Usha doesn't mind us handling him but I'm sure she'd like it better if we didn't. She didn't have any milk the first day so it was a little hands on and since its winter we have to be ever diligent.

Roy, most of them are a little OOF. It's partially to the fact that this thing never stops moving! But more importantly it's that I was shooting too low of an ISO in unideal conditions therefore getting poor shutter speeds and working with big apertures, I didn't think about it until after I'd uploaded these shots. The rest of the shots from the day are better because I noticed the problem once they were on the computer screen and rectified my situation. I always forget ISO (I think the camera should yell it out when it turns on or something :G)

I'll try to get some better shots of Leon but the weather has been very bleghh lately. At least these ones placated all the crazy realtives :?

You can set a range of ISO so if you are using P mode, the camera will automatically shift ISOs to match the lighting conditions. It won't do this if you are using manual lenses, though.

Must have been the best christmas gift of all!

I spite of the focus issue, I think the last one makes a very nice portrait of your aunt and Noel. I must say they are both very pretty!:-)
