Happy Holidays from Saudi Arabia: Camel in Natural Habitat

dscf9835-2-copy
HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM SAUDI ARABIA!
I thought I would post today about something that most people think of when they picture this country: the camel.  I shot this camel from a moving car.  Wait!  Let me re-phrase that:  I shot this PHOTO of a camel from a moving car on our recent drive from Jeddah to Madinah.  I was able to see dozens of camels roaming freely in the wild. I even saw a rare white camel among them. On this same ride I was able to see other native wildlife roaming free, like baboons, sheep, and goats.
For a bit more information about the dromedary camels that are native to Saudi Arabia, you can check out one of my previous posts by clicking here.
Wishing you a joyful and safe holiday season and hoping for long overdue peace in our world in the coming new year …
