Photographer's Note

Camels are the most extraordinary creatures. They can go for over 10 days in the hottest, most arid conditions without water (and much, much longer without food), they walk in the most graceful manner, and above all, despite the harsh conditions they endure, they are never short of a smile!! ;-)

At this spot we had left our 4WDs which you can seen in the background, for a quick stop to view an unusual arch in the rock, which was behind me as I shot this. The camel looked at me with vague interest, lips slightly pursed as I crouched down to photograph him. You can just about see his calloused knees in the foreground, from all the hours of kneeling in the dry sand.

No PP except for resizing/resharpening.
