16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
My daughter and her beloved hen, Ruth.

I took this picture on a hot, August evening here on our property in East Texas. My daughter, Macy, loves to hold and pet our chickens. They run to her like a puppy dog. This picture captures the happiness a child can still receive from animals and playing outdoors.
