    A little camel action

    Camels are unsurprisingly a very common sight on the roads in the United Arab Emirates. They are allowed out of their pens by day and frequently walk along roads near their homes. Sometimes tethered to stop them running and going too far, sometimes let loose to go wherever they want. Some are bred for meat and milk and the more fortunate become racing camels. Here's a little set:

    Beautiful shots. I like 1, 2 and 4 best.

    The one at the back in #1 is not that happy about something.

    Thanks Bobo

    I was sitting in the road in front of them, shooting away, and then hit 70mm on my 70-300 and thought it best to move. Playing chicken with them wasn't advisable!
