May 2016 Yosemite Instagram Month in Review

Bear May 2016 Yosemite InstagramYosemite National Park continued to sparkle in May. The waterfalls kept booming and vernal reflection pools were everywhere. In our May 2016 Yosemite Instagram photos I was able to represent the lush green Valley and sprinkled in some black and white images. I also shot a couple of videos which became instantly popular, including my first black (blonde) bear sighting of the year. We noticed the bear on the opposite bank of the Tenaya Creek. It was on the other side of the trail so you can imagine our surprise to see it pop out right in front of a gathering crowd of hikers. The bear seemed nonplussed by the onlookers as it grubbed on a few different logs and attacked a beehive full of honey.

Here are some of the most popular photos from our May 2016 Yosemite Instagram with 175 likes or more. There are many more on our feed where we are quickly approaching 2000 followers. Please follow and share with other instagrammers to help us build our Instagram audience @yexplore.

Photographing with a camera phone was once frowned upon as a lazy way out of making an image. With advancing technology, these phones are becoming more integral in everyday “outdoor” life. I am currently using the iPhone 6s with an 12 megapixel camera and will share the world of Yosemite through my phone.
