Sky Watch #41


LVGC0083, originally uploaded by M'roy.

As you can see, blue skies kept us company during our very short visit to Grand Canyon. This crow did not budge at all while we took photos/posed under this tree. Did not even bother to look when we were shooting him. He's probably used to all the tourists' attention.

Happy Skywatching everyone. Want more sky? Click here.
