I like this shot very much — it is colorful, humorous, exotic, and it's an incisive portrait of the camel. Strange creatures, but so durable — a description leaps to mind, "a camel is a racehorse designed by a committee." Most of us have some experience with committees, and know that this is an apt description. Do you know whether this is the Khufu (Cheops) or the Khafre (Chephron) Pyramid. Many years ago I was tangentially involved in mapping out the structure of the Chephron, using the cosmic radiation, muons, as the probe.

This is a refreshingly different camel picture. Love the contrast of the bright green 'lunch' with the stone. The camel really seems to be looking at you. Great picture!

Great photo from beside a pyramid. Such a well photographed area of this world and yet you have managed to capture the location and a familiar camel in a unique way. Cheers, Marlene

Love this colorful shot!The camel is beautiful :) In Egyptian Arabic the word for camel is "Gamel" The word for beautiful is "Gameel". Very similar but not quite the same. MaSalaam!
