The Woodswoman’s Quality Time

The history behind the this photo: I had just come in from looking for rabbits hanging 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 near the fruit trees and we eat them. I had just come back in, and it was bitterly cold. Daphne, in her usual prescient manner, knew I was coming back in and put on tea for me. I asked her to hold the shotgun for me while I took off my boots and realized what a great photo that would make.
