Drone footage captured by an avid nature photographer showed camels west of Saudi Arabia’s Al Khurma oasis amid a desert flash flood as they are herded by their owner.
The drone footage was captured by Saudi Arabian citizen Bedah (Abu Faisal) al-Bedah who posted the footage on his Twitter account, garnering more than 50,000 views since last Tuesday.
The Al Khurma oasis is located some 230 km northeast of the city of Taif in western Saudi Arabia.
