Cria - Baby Llama suckling mother Llama (Argentina)

This baby llama (probably only a few days old) was on the wrong side of the fence, with the mom on the other side.­ I took it and dropped it over the fence.­ It was very calm given the situation.­ It ran to its mom and immediately started suckling!
