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!

One of my readers, in her comment, wondered why the male hummers arrive earlier than the female hummers.  We have always found this to be the case except last year; a female hummer showed up way ahead of any males.  The only thing I can think of is the males have less baggage so they can fly faster??

Seriously, if anyone knows the answer, would you share it?  I'm too lazy to search it!

  1. Ha...I am just now getting caught up.

    Males arrive early to claim territory. If a male hummer "owns" a territory, a female hummer will be impressed.

    I am sure there is a connection here with some human male behavior, like grabbing TV remotes ASAP, but I am not sure about it.

    It was great to visit you and Dan the other day!
