"Hey, there"

I took this shot a few years ago while taking part in a cattle drive on a working farm by Gunnison, Colorado. True to her herding instinct, this dog couldn't take her eyes off of the mare's heels. 

 I love the direction of the energy from dogs nose to the heels to the mare giving a warning glance.
