The story behind this photo: I had just come inside from hunting rabbits around the fruit trees. They like to strip the bark in winter, and if they strip it all the way around, it will kill the trees. So I shoot the rabbits in the fruit grove and we eat them. It was bitterly cold that day and Daphne, in her usual prescient manner, had put the tea kettle on for me just as I walked in. I asked her to hold the shotgun while I took off my boots and realized what a great photo that would make.
