About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

I got a lot more shots yesterday and even managed to get some close up of the deer flies (not on purpose, they landed on the lens just as I clicked!). I have more to share as long as my computer keeps plugging away. You can see his "tongue" if you look closely.

  1. Those are amazing. And I am jealous of your pretty lilacs. I can almost smell them through the computer :)

  2. Wow...again!
    You grabbed some awesome shots of this rare moth...I need to know more about them, I have not seen one, ever!

  3. Ashley and Retired One (and anyone else who may post a comment).

    My laptop won't be back till next week and this old one is making me very nervous so I may not even attempt to do things that don't pertain to business. So, if you don't hear from me or I don't respond to any comments, please understand I'm not ignoring anyone. The old computer is SO SLOW even after a defrag and some other things that I know enough to do.

    But in the meantime, the best thing to do for more info about these guys is Google them. If you don't know what you are looking for, they are sometimes very hard to find.

    And the lilacs DO smell nice!!
