Territory by Sandra Ketcham

Three peacocks stand guard as a dog tiptoes toward a barn. Peering in, the dog's focus splits between a rain puddle in the far corner and a dancing bug, caught in a silver web to his right. Sensing the dog's distraction, the peacocks attack. Fur and feathers fill the barn.

How do you feel about alpacas? This paints such a vivid scene.
