Priscilla Fontechia is a retired high school art teacher turned photographer. Her home on the shores of Lake Barkley provides a myriad of opportunities for the wildlife photography she so adores. Basically, the wildlife comes to her, including a skunk she has named Pepe le Pew who comes when called for the marshmallows she provides.
