California Condors

Made a trip to the Grand Canyon this past week with my girlfriend, her cousin, and two brothers. We were treated to great views of the condors at the south rim. Two of them were there on the cliff just hanging out and preening one another. A third condor appeared out of thin air and joined them on the rocks for a few minutes before they all took off and soared around the bend out of sight.

With the canyon being such an enormous place and the condors so few in numbers, I certainly feel lucky to have shared half an hour with them.

I simply love vultures and these pictures take the cake! How wonderful to have seen them in person.
