This is one of the touristical attractions of Pamukkale (Hieropolis); this camel sits there and wait for tourists who let them photograph with him !
But the title "devenin bashi" (translated; head of the camel) is a well known idiom in turkish.
If you start to tell irrealistic stories (tall tales) one can oppose you with saying this !
Bu kareyi Denizli Pamukkale de çektim. Orada oturup turistlerle hatıra fotoğrafı çektiren deve !
"Devenin Başı" nın ne demek olduğunu ise sizlere anlatmaya gerek yok, hepiniz biliyorsunuz : Yok devenin başı !

Neighbours yet again Mesut. he may have been there for tourists but this is a great portrait. Cl;ose, colourful and in focus. Well done.

Merhaba Mesut. of more importance to me is the title as I have finally found out from where did the Croats borrow the word for the camel. We call the animal deva and I see that it's something like the Turkish word. This one of yours looks like a real character and a redhead too! Selamlar. Klaudio.

vediamo perfettamente come spesso cercare il dettaglio ti fa entrare in un mondo del tutto nuovo. I colori sono bellissimi, la rete verde in primo piano crea un bel punto d'attrazione, bello il cappello, la nitidezza è superlativa.
Un caro abbraccio.

Ciao dear Mesut,
beautiful close-up on this nice camel. Impressive photo quality and the perfect definition of the details. The eye seems to look at us independently of the position of the monitor. Excellent idea, perfectly realized. Congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice weekend!

Superb framing and portrait of this animal, although I do not really like to see filled with rope and muzzle (although I know they bite).
The detail of the hat makes him look funny.
Excellent color and detail.

Hi MARHABA my dear Mesut
Unusual object as you but still remains excellent!
Unique nature shot, his gentle eye is attractive indeed. Best moment you catch with perfect clipping framework. So meaningful presentation by nice sharp vivid color and well stable balanced composition as usual. Thanks for your sharing finest work and have a good day!

il a l'air bien sympathique cette animal ainsi acoutré, on le sait utile et serviable, infatigable, un plan rapproché d'une grande qualité technique.
Mes amitiés et excellent dimanche.

Das hättst Du auch "Hat of the camel! nennen können ;-)) Ein Portrait der ganz besonderen Art - und eindrucksvoll. Zusammen mit Deinem Kommentar wieder einmal sehens- und lesenswert!
