Behold Homo turisticus ssp. congestissimus, a subspecies* that was impossible not to notice and hard to avoid when we visited the Grand Canyon on October 19th. That was a Wednesday, so imagine the horror of a weekend visitor running a gauntlet of ten thousand phones and selfie-sticks.
But this is a nature photography blog, so let me show a personless picture from that visit.
* Last year I found that the same subspecies has spread to New Zealand.
