Here’s a small ensemble of common Yosemite critters. It was our first time seeing the Steller’s Jay, its electric blue colour instantly captured our attention, they are everywhere inside the park, and like the squirrels, are not afraid of humans.
Despite the “Do not feed the squirrels” sign all over, these happy rodents are never short of grubs. Many exhibit audacity unseen in squirrels of other regions.
On our way to the Glacier Point, we spotted the rather timid looking coyote, standing at roadside, looking at the oncoming traffic.
