I have a couple of hummingbird feeders just outside my backdoor. I can walk out and watch, without my camera, as the hummingbird partakes of the nectar I blend. If I bring my camera out and just wait, patiently, he/she will either not show up or hides on the backside of the feeder. You can just see his tail feathers in one of the images.
I’m determined to get a shot of this shy or perhaps, sly guy. He really does keep an eye on me while I’m watching him; he’ll stop drinking ( or whatever it is they do) and peek over at me. He’s really diligent about watching his surroundings.
Excited to announce a new genus of tree:
Pascha Ovo Ligno
Indiginous to: Capitol Hill, Seattle.
A few years ago the Pike Place Market celebrated its 100th anniversary. One of the more interesting events surrounding this occasion was called Pigs on Parade. Various sculpted pigs were given out to various artists to decorate/paint as they wished. The Pigs would then be placed at various locations in downtown Seattle. I went around one day and photographed as many as I could find in the time frame I had given myself. So, over the next couple of weeks I will be posting those photos. The Golden pig, in this post, was stationed on top of a building in the Market itself.
I’m not sure what this was meant to be-Merman or Mermaid or? Some kind of sea creature?
Mystery is part of the fun and charm :-).
In an effort to reduce on street parking, the City of Seattle has sanctioned rooftop parking for certain vehicles.
“I think I will do some discreet human watching. The patrons will think I am just a stuffed mouse”.
Hard to stay focussed on the crossword puzzle, even if it is Will Shortz’ NY Times version, when there is a PUMPKIN SPICE SCONE on the table!!
Being a mouse in a human world has its challenges. Charley has overcome the coffee cup challenge, but the water glass is another matter.
