It was quit an eye catcher for me to see this camel in the center of the image staring and tracking the birds above as they flew by him. Who would have thought even camels find birds in flight interesting.

Notes: Sorry for the, less than perfect, exposure and sharpness but when you're off-roading in the middle of a desert, last thing you want to do is stop the vehicle and get stuck in the sand. So the shot was taken while bouncing up and down on sand dunes. Sharpness is whatever you get in the end.
