About Me

About Me
(FREE) hop along my wayward son by SqdPxl

Hello! My name is Kathy, also known as rainylake here on deviantart. You will see me running around the community posting photos, features, interviews, administrating groups and other miscellaneous things.

On the side, I dabble in photography. I am completely self taught, and of course, always learning :giggle: I have an infinite love of birds and animals, particularly the grackle (the bird in my icon), and african wild dogs.

If you have any questions about me, feel free to ask. I won't bite :aww:

Find me here

Want to chat with me? I'm generally idling in #ThumbHub, so stop on by!
