    Camels - Worth a Read for all of you!!
    LOOK at the camels first and then read the message below.


    [​IMG]This is a picture taken from directly above these camels in the desert at sunset. It is considered to be one of the best pictures of the year. When you look closely, you can see that the camels are the little white lines in the picture. The black images you see are just the shadows!
    Sometimes, our "problems" seem to be as big as the shadows...in God's eyes they are little. Have a lovely DAY!
    LOOK ONCE MORE. YOU CANNOT BELIEVE IT, RIGHT?
    Don’t focus on the shadows in your lif

    The crazy thing (to me) is that they align in the same direction ALWAYS - and in fact, you not only see this in such animals, but COWS as well:
    Some researchers artificially created an alternate north-south axis, and lo and behold... some of the cows tested actually REALIGNED themselves to match the new North-South perfectly.

    Morale of the story - so much s*** unexplained in the world!! :D

    When cows lie down, it means it's going to rain. Supposedly they sense the moisture in the air and want to make sure of a dry spot to lie on.

    Also, tiny black ants have a heightened sense of activity and typically indicates that it is about to rain.

    I also heard that dogs howl when they anticipate someone is going to die in the neighbourhood.

    Or maybe they do that to fool you into thinking its going to rain! You then go away and give them back their damn privacy!

    My late dog (a german dachshund) could sense my dad's car coming even when it was almost half a kilometer away!

    The latter is mentioned in Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, I believe. His works contain a lot of US Southern folklore.

    I remember reading when you see miller moths drawn to the light from your doorway, they are believed to represent the souls of the deceased.

    That ability is common with dogs.

    Such nice images of camels, i probably should not add this tidbit of military history; but Lawrence of Arabia in the heat of a cavalry charge against the Turks shot his own camel in the back of the head.
