An ill-judged photo – what is cultural intelligence?

Last year I spent several months with Bedouins in Israel. I had already seen and learned a lot: camels run wild, you don't take photos of women, french fries are part of a real falafel. One day I wanted to take a picture of the village camel. But as I was walking towards the animal with the camera in my hand, several men ran up to me furiously. I had no idea what they were yelling, but they were clearly not happy about my intention to take some photos. I was confused and uncertain, because I couldn’t really understand the situation and whether it presented any dangers – no-one had told me it was forbidden to take photos of animals. How should I have behaved?
