Title:
Where Great Herds Come to Drink
Credit Line:

Gloss:
Dawn or dusk: a time for drink. Soft light is reflected upon mesa and butte outcroppings that rise out of arid plains, home for the great herds. The lead buffalo stares as if the viewers are threatening this pastoral scene. While herding their young, these buffalo share the water with other herbivores, the elk.
