This Condor sat for over thirty minutes posing for pictures or perhaps waiting for a tourist to fall and become canyon kill.
His rock outcropping was his stage.
He is marked as number 50 and has GPS tracking. The National Park Service monitors the birds as there are less than one hundred in the Canyon area.
After posing on the rock across from the tourists, he decided to get up close and personal with his fans and flew to the railing in front of the tourists. See my next photo.
I also posted this picture on flickr.com in a group the tracks birds. It seems number 50 was spotted later in the year on the California Coast.
I guess posing is hard work and he needed a little vacation.
