Camel, Socotra Island

Photograph by Sergei Reoutov, My Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animals

On the dunes of Socotra island, Yemen. Seconds later the camel set off in a run down the dunes, its feet sinking into the sand. It vanished behind the dunes, leaving me with this picture and the most awe-inspiring memories of Socotra.
