Harlequin Lupine

Lupine’s come in  many varieties that are different shades of lavender and purple and sometimes pink but he Harlequin has the most unique coloring with its  mix of yellow,  pink, lavender and purple. It is not as common or abundant as the ones usually seen growing in the fields of the mid to higher elevations of the Sierra-Nevada so it is always a lovely surprise.

Stellar Jay

Stellar Jays are beautiful birds with their striking blue colors and their crest.  They are also fun to watch because they have a strong personality that shows in some of their antics and in their interactions with each other, other birds and humans.  They have become quite accustomed to human contact in Yosemite and are notorious thieves, often stealing unprotected food from campsite tables. Have a wonderful day.
