A California Condor in the Grand Canyon...

It's not a "long shot" it's a very small piece of an image taken with a 35mm lens. We where fortunate enough to see several as they came back to the roost site in the late afternoon.
As you might be aware the bird is actually black in color, the golden appearance is the result of the setting sun reflected on it's wings and back.
With only about 79 birds in Arizona it was a thrill to see four of them at the same time.
