[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yet, another shot of a wild guanaco from Torres del Paine National Park in the extreme south of Chilean Patagonia, this time a bit more upclose and personal. This was the first wild one I encountered in Chile, I saw them in Argentina before but only from a more than safe distance, impenetrable even with serious zoom lens. This one was literally few meters away and had not much fear of me, soon after I took this shot within the hour I run into multiple herds of probably more than a hundred, gathering around the fat vegetation neighbouring the glacial lakes...

Salut Radule, deci ai ajuns si prin Patagonia. Oamenii sunt chiar asa inalti cum se spune? Frumos guanaco, culori OK, dar parca prea inchisa poza.
Potzi sa ne prezinti cumva o lama, vicunia, guanaco, si alpaca sa vedem diferenta intre ele?
Succes! Dan.

Nice shot, Radu.
Well composed and colorfull.
Good POV.

Hi Radu,
Very nice warm colours on the guanaco fur.
The composition gives the lady a very aristocratic look.
Well done and TFS

Hello Radu, another excellent picture from your great trip. This is a wonderful Guanaco picture. I like it very much. Excellent sharpness, brillant colours and excellent POV. This is an excellent presentation. Thank you for posting.

Te fuiste a Chile para capturar imágenes de guanacos???
Aquí en Argentina los tenemos más grandes y bonitos!!!
Aunque el POV no es mejor, me agrada el detalle del animal y el detalle del entorno tan duro donde habita.
Buen trabajo!.
Saludos... Ricardo
