I am a 71 year old hobbyist photographer who enjoys shooting pictures of birds. I am happily married to my husband for 45 years.

I appreciate the challenges and themes that the staff offers for us to improve our work in a variety of situations. A proud achievement for me was to get story of the week 8 in 2011.

Use what talents you have; the woods would have little music if no birds sang their song except those who sang best. Quote by Oliver G. Wilson
