California Condor

Went to the Grand Canyon today and desperately wanted to see one of the famous California Condors. After 5 hours, and seeing nothing but Ravens, a walk along the Rim Trail to the El Tovar Hotel, suddenly 2 Condors appeared. Of course, I had the camera put away but managed to get this nice shot of one in full span above the American Flag.

Patience pays off!
