The Shepherd and the Lamb

A shepherd in Beyşehir, Turkey, bottle-feeds a lamb after its mother died. He will have to continue doing so, as the lamb refused to bond with the nursing sheep to the right. He wears a kepenek, a traditional shepherd's cloak made out of felt, that covers him from shoulder to ankle. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
