That first one is stunning.
And thanks for the info about the creatures. I had not known that.

Wow, Rajan.  This might be the best and most interesting dunes photo (the first one) I may have ever seen!

Good ones. I remember seeing these little guys in Oman, going uphill on the sand dunes, pushing balls of dried excrement.

I can only heap superlatives upon superlatives. Number one is a prize winner, for sure.

Yeah, that first one tells a fun story. I can almost sympathize with him, or maybe relate... a long journey for him might be the size of a football field, and for us, it's more like 20 miles... makes me wonder what he eats.
