swan-baby-mother-bird_80194_990x742We’d have to agree with the headline sent our way by Carmen C. For above, she says “I can literally (well, almost) feel the softness at the tips of my fingers and the cheeks of my face!!” (A cygnet peers out from its mother’s wing at a local pond in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.) And for the Llama below, “this one is one of the prettiest pouts I’ve ever seen!” (Taken at Bolivia’s Laguna Colorado salt lake.)
