Your Shot photographer Ankit Sharma captured this image the Pushkar Annual Camel Fair-2016. “This place is quite famous for rural Rajasthani culture and camel trade,” writes Sharma. “This image was captured when the camel was vaccinated and it became uncontrollable. It was a rare sight since camels are domesticated animals, so that made me want to document this scene.” Photograph by Ankit Sharma
