[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Dromedary (Camelus dromedarius) is a large even-toed ungulate native to northern Africa and western Asia, and is the best-known member of the camel family. The dromedary has one hump on its back, in contrast to the Bactrian camel which has two. The dromedary is sometimes called an Arabian Camel. Some maintain that the name "dromedary" should be used to refer only to racing camels.

Originally native to western Asia, dromedaries were first domesticated in central or southern Arabia some thousands of years ago. Experts are divided regarding the date: some believe it was around 4000 BC, others as recently as 1400 BC. There are currently almost 13 million domesticated dromedaries, mostly in the area from India to northern Africa. None survive in the wild in their original range, although there is an escaped feral population of about 300,000 in Australia. Which is the only wild herd of its kind.

What a funny picture, your timing was perfect ! The pose of the camel, with mouth wide open, is fantastic. Excellent details, colors, composition and POV. The BG is great too, makes the camel come out very nicely. Well done !
