Use a zoom lens on your camera. If you are close enough to take a selfie with wildlife, you are wayyyy too close...gingerly back away.

And that’s the way the cookie crumbles... We like selfies. We also like it when your trip to a national park is a fun, safe, and memorable experience! When capturing the perfect image or selfie, be a smart photographer. 📷 Animals may appear to be calm and docile but are unpredictable and can easily be startled. Use a zoom lens on your camera. If you are close enough to take a selfie, you are wayyyy too close...gingerly back away. 📷 We get it---national parks have some pretty photogenic scenery, but do not put your life at risk for a picture. Stick to the trails and boardwalks. Use extra caution and watch your step. Keep your eyes on the trail and not your camera while walking. 📷 If a photo opportunity catches your eye while driving, pull over to a safe location to capture the shot. Distracted driving puts you and others at risk. Remember to look both ways for oncoming traffic before crossing the road. #FindYourPark #KeepSafetyInThePicture #selfie #cookie #gingerbread
