MRO/HiRise capture the MSL/Curiosity's descent

While its nice to see the early photos of Mars taken by the MSL/Curiosity Rover, they mostly just show that the rover is alive.  For me, the following is much cooler!  (Via High Power Rocketry - Emily's Blog - NASA/JPL - Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's HiRISE camera). What would have been EVEN BETTER would have been to see the sky crane's thrusters burning!
