Day 50 of Project 365 … and Camels!

Camels behind my house

I’ve reached my first milestone of Project365 (photo a day) – Day 50! I haven’t missed any days yet.

I had some errands in the shopping center in Maale Adumim. On my way home I took a slight detour to pick up something from a neighbour. An unusually large group of camels was down in the wadi — about 30 of them. I heard they’ve been there for a couple weeks but they must go to different places to graze in the morning because I’ve never seen them on that side during my morning walk/run. I only had my 18-55 lens with me, so these have been cropped slightly. The pair of camels at the top was reasonably close. The rest were further down in the wadi, along several hillsides. They belong to the Bedouin.

I suppose I could have run home to get my 55-250mm lens but I was tired from the walk in the heat and it’s not as though camels are all that unusual in our area.
