Villa Buoninsegna about 2 kilometers from the "Terme" (hot springs) at Rapolano is surrounded by beautiful vineyards and olive orchards. This fall afternoon was quite warm with every characteristic Tuscan landscape element present. I stood at the edge and just absorbed all I could. A rabbit hunter passed my way with a friendly wave and "Bella, bella" comment about this painting, which, of course, made my day.
An hour later, from the trees to the left of me, "Ka-Boom!!" He shot a rabbet for his dinner.
