Beribboned in Bolivia

"At 14,000 feet in icy winds this llama was completely at home," writes Esther Buttery, who submitted this photo, taken on Bolivia's Laguna Colorado salt lake, to the Traveler Photo Contest. "It was a different world for me. I'd like to think that we shared a moment."

This photo and caption were submitted to the 2014 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.
