Waterfront Happenings!

Was fun getting back to Duluth, and finally having some time to get out with my camera. Before heading down to Canal Park yesterday evening, I even had a few moments to hang out in the garden with my favorite ruby-throated hummingbirds. The individual pictured was very aggressive, often driving off up to two other hummingbirds from the garden at once!

My reason for the trip down to the waterfront at sunset was to watch our last tall ship leave Duluth. The El Galeon Andalucia’s (Spanish Galleon) was in her majesty as she sailed out onto Lake Superior.

This morning the fantastic weather necessitate another trip down to the waterfront, and at the abandoned pier near Grassy Point I found snadpipers taking a rest from their long migration and filling up the tank.
