has been a member since Jul 2008 and goes by andreajeanne64.

I turned 72 Sept.5th. My special interest as an amateur is wild bird photography. I enjoy nature hikes in the woods with both my husband who I am happily married to for 46 years and with our dog Tippi.

I appreciate the challenges that the staff offers us and am inspired by the works of many talented members. A proud achievement for me was to get story of the week 8 in 2011.
