James, there you go getting me cross posting 14mm pictures in the 45-200mm thread... thanks as always for viewing.. back to the 45-200mm shots

we were treated to see a pair of califronia condors soaring above our heads. I took a few shots, this being the best, unfortunately the focus against the bright blue background on a moving object is not the strong point of the contrast based focusing that is used by the mft camera. This bird is the largest in north america and was nearly extinct. You'll notice that the bird in the bottom of the frame has tags on his wings (mid-way) this indicates he was released from captive breeding. The other bird appears to be wild. I chatted with a bus driver who told me a watering hole spot that I unfortunately didn't get the chance to visit. He also shared some amazing photos in a book of the condors and turkey vultures.

the grand canyon hotels in the park are really quite nice and affordable too ($160 a night!) they also get visited at dusk by deer and elk coming into graze, you are inside a national park after all. The middle one is a male and he had 4-5 does with him.
