I have promised many of you that I would find the time to get back to my editing of our trip this year to the Grand Canyon.    Well , I think now is the time, so get ready………..  I only had my 70-200mm here and no tripod, so  not as sharp and detailed as I would like, but here is one of the numbered California Condors that roam the Canyon for their sustenance.   Number 23 in fact,  special number of  the special coach Keith LeClair at East Carolina University, who died several years ago, a victim of Lou Gehrig’s disease.   Please enjoy this photo!

  1. I’ve always wanted to see the Condor at the Grand Canyon but I’ve always missed it. You’re so lucky!

    • Hi,, I turned 55 this year, and this was my first visit to the Canyon…… it is unbelieveable… and the condors were out in force,, it was April, so maybe that is a good time of the year for them?

  2. Nice photo. The shot sort of puts gives the perspective of high how you were to get this photo and how far below the jagged rock formations go toward the bottom of the canyon. (don’t know if that made any sense at all). I didn’t know there are condors at the Grand Canyon. I suppose these were released there which was a good idea. Might be that the birds get more protection from man and other things that could kill the birds.

  3. Wow! Big bird! Excellent!

  4. Beautiful bird. Lucky you to have seen him and gotten a shot. Thank you for sharing.

So I’ve been drawing pictures from magazines for years: Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Sports Illustrated. As a result I’ve accumulated a stack of sketchbooks on my bookshelf. I thought I would use this as a place to post the ones I like best. Hope you enjoy!
