There are two hummingbird feeders on my deck. This little guy has decided one of them is his private feeding station. He spends time watching the feeder from a nearby tree. When another hummer arrives, he takes off like a jet to chase away the competition.
|Song Sparrow ... they are in Seattle all year.|
|On June 13th the world's largest ship loading cranes arrived|
in Seattle. The cranes were manufactured in China.
They are about 360 feet (110 m) high.
|The delivery ship is the Zhen Hua 36|
|The new cranes will operate at Port of Seattle|
Terminal 5 which has excellent railway access.
|I would love to be there to see how they unload the cranes|
from the ship, but the public is not invited.
|This diagram shows the reach of the new cranes|
as compared to currently used cranes.
The new ones will be able to load/unload
the largest container ships in global service.
|June 15th ...|
My photo of Zhen Hua 36 snapped while on my walk on
the waterfront trail ... all the way across Elliott Bay.
The Canon SX730 with 40X zoom can capture views
almost like looking through binoculars.
|This photo snapped while on my walk, Sunday, June 20.|
2 of the 4 cranes delivered by Zhen Hua 36 have been
moved shore side.
|This photo snapped while on my walk, Tuesday, June 22.|
All 4 of the giant cranes have been moved shore side.
They arrived on the 13th ... all unloaded by end of day June 21.

|RUTH has arrived at the Grain Terminal|
|RUTH's home port is Monrovia and|
she flys the flag of Liberia.
|The flag caught my attention ... it looks like the American|
flag yet with just one star and 11 stripes. Yes, it's the flag of Liberia.

|What I like about this photo: It gives a good idea of scale.|
Sailboats and a fairly large yacht in the foreground
give a good idea of the size of CMA CGM container ship.
|Saw the baby bunny on the trail ahead when|
he/she scampered into hiding spot.
|It's past its prime but it still fascinates me the way|
nature comes up with these designs.
|Most of the iris have passed blooming.|
This one is a late bloomer.
On a morning after a rainy night.
|Just a random spot I happened to glance down.|
Actually had to step back a few paces to look again
and snap the photo.
