Animal Wednesday - Camel

National Geographic has an article in their latest magazine about camels. I have always been facinated by these creatures. Their eyes are so interesting with those long lashes that help keep out the sand. Happy Animal Wednesday. For more animal pictures go to Teri's Painted Daisies.

beautiful head. I always found camels are beautiful, despite their reputation of being mean.

I love camels. I used to think they were ugly, but now I think they are amazing, glamorous creatures.

I do love the camels and all the camelids of South America.
While I hike I think of myself as a camel...I do carry water.
Wonderful drawing.
It is exciting to see all your art.
