Thank you all so much for your comments. These are very hardy animals, living in -40C in the winter and +40C in the summer. In the winter they have gorgeous wool coats to keep them warm and look fantastic. My daughter used to think that the camels stored food in their humps - one for food and one for water! They are of course just fat!

Fascinating to see the unusual sight (for us westerners) of camels. Thank you so much for posting from Mongolia..a place not many of us will ever see.
God bless you in your work.

Outstanding photo! Well deserved AC. Amazing how the lines of the camels' backs and the mountain ridges make the same patterns.
