There are 200 of these birds left in the world today. I was fortunate enough to have one land about 50 feet from me while shooting the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. I hope you enjoy.

Very powerful shot. Well done!! It gives a good sense of depth and height as to where the bird is perched.

FRAME IT RIGHT NOW! That picture is like a pose and the background couldn't be better!! Did you bring a filet mignon up there to lure him in? :-)
