Thanks. She took an interest when I set up my tripod to shoot the surrounding peaks in the setting sun. This was thwarted when the clouds rolled in, but she hung around, cute and friendly.

After a while I gave her a large safety pin I had in my pocket, and this totally won her heart. By the time I turned the camera on her she had lost interest in it, but not so her brother, who was still fascinated by this huge eye staring back at him.
