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!

We have a few windows that don't have screens in yet (too darn cold!!) so these shots were taken through the living room window.

The last shot, of the two males, if you look at the little guy on the right, he appears "sickly". Dan and I wonder if they have been fighting too much or if he is just old. He reminded me of a sick looking bird. And he just sat there while the other one was trying to pick on him. He finally did fly off but of course, NOW I'M CONCERNED!!!

    Beautiful photos Cathy. I love to watch the hummingbirds. We generally have a lot of them flitting around the feeder but we were gone for 5 days and they went away! Fickle little critters! Sandy

  2. Sandy,thanks! I would have loved to been outside getting the photos instead of through the window but for some reason they aren't using the feeder on the deck this year.

    I just hope that one little guy is OK. He looked pretty bad.

  3. Sooo cute...I gotta get my feeders up!
    Loved these photos!

  4. Retired One...YES!! Get the feeders up! We also have two stupid male orioles who try to peck the flowers off the hummer feeders.
