camel minders

This one is for Nancy, who had a post recently about elephant minders in Delhi. Ironically enough, I found the picture in an Indian magazine that a friend of mine brought back for me from India. While I have seen the caracases of camels lying by the road after an accident, I'm yet to see a camel thus decorated. The photograph was taken in the Negev Desert. They say that as many as 1000 camels will be equipped with the new phosphorescent strips in an effort to cutdown camel-vehicle collisions.
