In this candid capture we see reddit user LizaThornberry admiring a breathtaking view of Machu Picchu when a llama suddenly appeared and decided to join her.
Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca site located 2,430 metres (7,970 ft) above sea level in Peru.
The Incas built the estate around 1450 but abandoned it a century later at the time of the Spanish Conquest.
Machu Picchu was declared a Peruvian Historical Sanctuary in 1981 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983.
In 2007 it was voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and is Peru’s most visited tourist attraction.
