Today I stared a camel in the face

Newer Older

This Bactrian camel was snacking away on some bark (I think) on a fallen tree at Chester Zoo; he popped his head up while still eating and stared into my lens; pausing for just a second. It allowed me to focus and get an eye to eye shot. This fella is pretty damn hansom; a perfect symmetrical face :)

I got really lucky with timing at my zoo visit. Maybe a reward for sticking out in the cold and rain!

Random fact: This type of camel is critically endangered :(
