CAMELS! Part II

Here they are. I still need to get my SLR with telephoto for this. I got as close as I could to snap these but still had to hang way back so I would not spook them.



Here is a lovely, lovely beast. The drover was nearby and waved at me. At some point I will take the time to stop and try and get some up close shots of his charges and him. It will set me back a few dinar but these camels are the real deal, not some zoo kept animal.

Very cool pics. Never seen a camel in its real environment, the only one I ever saw was at my county fair. Thanks for sharing! :)

Nice shots. I've seen a couple of camels in the Australian outback, and while they were certainly not indigenous, they were just as foul tempered and stubborn as I suspect they are in the Middle East.

[Belushi voice] How much does one cost?? [/B-voice]
Should camels wear diapers like the goats?
