Happy Eid with camels in Leptadenia forest

Philosophical Note:  My life is precious and beautiful with nature and camels. This Eid ul Fitr (2023), I enjoyed the company of beautiful and shining camels in the Leptadenia forest, Shoaib Abudhabi. Leptadinia is the food of choice for the camels. Also, many tall and succulent types of grass are found inside the Leptadinia bushes, hiding from grazing and wind erosion in desert ecosystems. The camels can reach the grasses because of their long and flexible necks. I hereby share some very beautiful and self-explained images of my moments with the camels.

Importance of Leptadenia as a forage: It is widespread from Africa and the Arabian peninsula to South Asia. The camel likes it very much because of its taste and flavor. When lush, it has higher contents of Crude Protein, making it very attractive for camels.
