I am a 71 year old hobbyist photographer who enjoys shooting pictures of birds. I am happily married to my husband for 44 years.

A photographer should be well versed, which is why I appreciate the challenges and themes that the staff offers for us to do to improve our work in a variety of situations.

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
