Camera Critters #21


On our first trip to Gatlinburg we ran across this creature. They were giving rides but we opted for the photo shoot only. It was quite sad to see him tied up to a barn but who I am. He may have been living a wonderful life in camel standards.

Yes, I know how you feel too. But he does look well cared for.

It is really hard to tell from a photo but the camel looks well cared for. Perhaps it was just temporary! You got a lovely photo of its face. Such big eyes and long lashes!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Ah I feel bad for him to. It doesn't look like that long of a lead. He is pretty though.

Very nice shots of the camel. It does make you wonder sometimes as to the care of these captive animals.

He sure looks fat and happy, more so than the ones we see walking through the desert. :-)

He looks like a pretty animal... hopefully he was just tied up for a short moment for the rides... just temporarily until he got released to the huge meadow where he can roam freely.. yeh, that's it! =)
