The Cannery on a weekday is probably the quietest part of

Another week, another challenge. Unlike the previous bird, it took some sneaking, but I managed to get a close-up.
One more thing for the night. I was just going through the photos I’ve taken this summer in San Francisco, and came across this fellow from Fisherman’s Wharf. There are many more pictures to come…
