Camel Parade

In Saudi Arabia, a month-long festival culminates in a camel procession that is part parade, part beauty pageant. This photograph, taken by drone, captures the owners and judges as they drive alongside the camels, making their crtitiques. The most beautiful camels are often worth more than $300,000.
