Human Interaction - Honorable Mention, Steller’s Jay Stealing Sweetner Packets (by SFBBO Click Off Photo Contest)
“Photo by Bill Stone. After a morning and afternoon of photographing fall colors south of Lake Tahoe my daughter and I stopped for a late lunch at Sorenson’s Resort. We had watched this Jay flying around the outside tables and when the people next to us left he helped himself to the sweetener packets. He stashed them around the resort and came back for more.”
When I was wee and lived in California I had one of these plucky little jays steal a cookie right out of my hand at Yosemite. Definitely one of my favorite jays and I loved watching them when we’d visit Lake Tahoe. To this day if I hear the call of one in a movie or on the internet I smell Lake Tahoe. Glad to know the Tahoe jays are still as fearless as ever!
How Candee wishes I see her as a gremlin she ain’t this fly one!!!!! She the ugly kind
