On the north rim trail between upper Yosemite Falls and El Capitan
Found on a pineapple.
Not sure exactly what the dog is mixed with but it looks like wiener/lab
Not that easy to see, but the nail on the tip of the bill is slender, the whitish wing stripe when the wing was extended is short, and the peak of the head is on the rear of the crown, not the front, all separating it from a Greater Scaup.
Just when I thought the day couldn't get any better finding a garden slender salamander, I ended up finding these two guys. Like I said with the garden slender salamander observation, these guys overlap ranges with the garden slender salamanders in this particular location.
These hard "nuts" were falling out of a "pocket" on the branches of the trees
