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!

The Pinesiskins are enjoying the suet!

  1. I had to laugh when I saw your title! Wasn't sure at first what you were going to write about! Cute!

  2. DVM's wife...I can't wait to see the Junco's! THAT is a sure sign of spring!

    Do these photos appear dark to you? The reason I'm asking is that I posted them from my the laptop and the "lighting" didn't appear this dark. But on my older desk top, the photos appear dark. I know my other photos on the old computer are "truer to color" than on the lap top and I've tried adjusting the color to match the desk top settings, but it doesn't seem possible to get that combination. The "red rocks" on THIS computer ARE red...on the lap top they are a dull red. Thanks for any input.

  3. I love any bird pictures (which you can probably tell by the slideshow on my own blog!)....so I enjoyed them.

    They are a little dark on my laptop when I read the post, but on my big computer they may not look that way, either.

    I love to see the different flocks coming thru in spring!
    I asked this question on another blog today, but will re-ask again here:
    Does anyone know of a "chipmunk proof" birdfeeder that works?
    We put our feeders out on our deck so we can watch from inside, so I am looking for one that is easy to fill (not on a tall pole), but rather one with some kind of trick mechanism to keep chipmunks out but still allow the birds to eat out of it. Anyone????
