The Cowboy

"In 2015 I was traveling in Central Mongolia, and I saw this little cowboy playing around with a cute calf," says Your Shot photographer José Vílchez. "He was very happy to pose for the photo; I am not so sure about the calf!" This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
