Full name:
Cindy Mead
City, state, country:
Northeastern Michigan

Naturalist, nature photographer and former field editor with an interest in all things wild, most especially moths and birds. I've been documenting and photographing moth species on our wooded property in Michigan since 2000, and I'm one of the original members of MPG. My thanks to Bob and so many others that helped to foster my knowledge and appreciation of moths.
My goal is to eventually fill in some of the gaps for moth species that occur in NE Michigan.

*A massive clearcut that borders our property has had a very profound effect on the moth population in my immediate area, so photos and comments are few and between at this point.
