Another shot of the Arabian Oryx, I leaned out of the window of a moving car for this one. Only tweaking is the crop. I've taken a lot of shots of these beautiful creatures and I may upload a few more before I bore you all.

While I was being driven around I discovered that petrol in Dubai is 15p a litre!! The driver nearly caused an accident when I told him the prices in the UK!

Excellent image Ken; as beautiful as the last one.
It would probably be close to 15p here too if they took off all the taxes.

A lovely shot Ken. These really do appear to be beautiful creatures.

Now we have first hand knowledge of the real price we should be paying for petrol. Reminds me very much of a sign I saw once 'Dont steal-- the Goverment does not like competiion'

I love the way those horns break up the picture, beautiful tones and an neat composition, especially considering it was taken on the move.

Two wheels are a lot cheaper than four !

Letterbox mode is perfect for this Ken.I think this is a fabulous image - love the composition of the Oryx - good detail - love those horns against the fading b/ground. Shot out of the window of a moving car too - thats brilliant.
