Here’s a look back from October 19th of last year at trees on the rim of the Grand Canyon. In harsh climates, dead limbs often adjoin living ones.

For whatever reason, subscription e-mails seem not to have gone out this morning, and my WordPress notifications don’t include the usual confirmation that this morning’s post got published (which it did). To see whether the glitch has been fixed, I’m following up with this post that includes another picture from the Grand Canyon on October 19th.

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.
