It's not their fault, camels don't always know their best angles.

They are misunderstood.

@wxyzalicia @JET850 AWWWWWWWWWWW YEAH!

That's why when a camel selfie goes right, it's the best camel selfie!

The selfie was taken by Egyptian photographer Hossam Atef Farouk, who works with the Antikka Photography Company in Egypt. You can check out more of his great work here.
