Runaway camel

This camel was not under the control of his handler and was zig-zagging down the road at a pretty fast clip, like right towards me at several points in time. I managed to get out of his way but had images of being run down by a runaway camel!

That one doesn't look as cuddly as the white ones.

I bet they can move when they want to! Another really interesting shot. Glad this was not a literal run-in with the camel. V
