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!

OK, I know...it's just a bug. But I've never seen a praying mantis this large! Or casting such a shadow. I thought of calling this "ONLY THE SHADOW KNOWS FOR SURE!!"

In regards to the weather, if it'll make you feel any better, we had to put an extra blanket on the bed last night; it was about 39 degrees when we got home from the photography speaker thing. And this a.m. it was only 50 inside!!

More later! I don't want to tie up the line too long!

    Anyone know what the prevailing religion of most praying mantis' is, just curious ? LOL ;p

  2. Wow...that sure WAS a big Praying Mantis!!
    Our weather has been gorgeous (for here!) It was 62 degrees today and sunny! I am sure it is the calm before the storm though. ha

  3. Oh my! Bugs like that would make me get in my car and drive home. ;)
