The Namib desert in Namibia is not known for its high rainfall, receiving under 10mm of rain annually and the plants and animals occurring here have adapted very well to these conditions. In many cases they get their water from the condensation that forms on plants when the thick mists roll in over the dunes from the cold Atlantic Ocean in the west.

Photo details: Nikon Df with 105mm f2.8 Micro lens. ISO400, 1/320sec and f13.
