Artist's Description

As a friend to the children
Commend me the Yak.
You will find it exactly the thing:
It will carry and fetch, you can ride on its back,
Or lead it about with a string.

The Tartar who dwells on the plains of Thibet
(A desolate region of snow)
Has for centuries made it a nursery pet,
And surely the Tartar should know!

Then tell you papa where the Yak can be got,
And if he is awfully rich
He will buy you the creature —
or else
he will not.
(I cannot be positive which.)

—Hillaire Belloc, The Bad Child’s Book of Beasts

Nikon D80 DSLR, Nikkor 16-85 mm wide angle/tele/zoom lens set at 85 mm.
