Winter wildlife

The seasonal rains have finally come to San Francisco. During a break in the drenching torents, I took a run around Lake Merced. The native fauna had come out.

The bird was remarkably calm about being approached by a human with a camera phone.

Did the banana slug mutter anything about UC Santa Crzuz? (Being their school mascot and all…)
