Skin and Bones

Photograph by Mario Cardenas, National Geographic Your Shot

Having succumbed to the forces of man or nature, an Arabian oryx leaves behind its skull and well-weathered horns. The “fascinating” remains were captured by Your Shot member Mario Cardenas in Al Gharbia, a region in the western United Arab Emirates. The camel and riders head in the direction of the annual camel festival in Madinat Zayed.
