A Man in Sheep's Clothes

Photograph by Seyit Konyali, National Geographic Your Shot

"Here is a farm in Beyşehir, Turkey," Your Shot photographer Seyit Konyali writes. "Shortly after the birth of lambs, shepherd İsmail [stays with them while they are] running around. He is wearing a poncho made of their mothers' wool. This makes the lambs feel closer to the shepherd while their mothers are out feeding."

Konyali’s photo recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.

Shows the true heart of a shepherd caring for the sheep, unlike the so called "shepherds" of most RELEAGEST organization's today!

Great motion caption, great look and even better story behind. That's what makes photography what it is...

I just love this photo, It pictures the passage of time for the shepherd.

A unique picture of a rugged looking shepherd and his sheep. Their blurred movement towards him, and the dead stop to clarity, of the lamb (and him) in his lap, is really a good shot.  Bravo!  j.e.s.......
