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'm still using the old computer and BOY did I get spoiled with that laptop as far as colors go!!! Can't wait to get it back because I don't feel that the photos I'm publishing here will look as good online as they do from my laptop!

I have more photos to post, but I'm trying to hold off till I get the other computer back....which might not be till the end of the week now!

The hummingbird moth was quite flighty to say the least and the wind was blowing so I'm surprised the lilacs aren't out of focus too.

  1. I will keep my fingers crossed for you that your computer comes back sooner than expected :)

    I am not sure if I have even seen a hummingbird moth. What great pictures. He or she looks so little. How amazing! Thank you for sharing.

  2. Ashley, my fingers are crossed too!

    I have more shots that I will try to post tomorrow (the old computer coopering that is). The deer flies were biting me a LOT so it made it hard to take photos!

  3. You have a good eye! Your pics are terrific.
    Sending good thoughts for your computer :-)

  4. Joanna, thanks for the well wishes and the compliment on the shots. I hope I can post more today, but I'm for sure taxing my old computer.

  5. Extraordinary!
    I have never heard of a hummingbird moth...can you tell me more about it!?????
    Great shot of its wings too!
