Mars orbiters take pictures of each other

Martian orbital space is getting crowded enough that the orbiters can take pictures of each other as shown in this NASA press release.

I remember what a big deal it was when the first Viking lander touched down. Now NASA has multiple satellites and vehicles on the ground at the same time. And don't forget the European Space Agency's (ESA) Mars Express orbiter. Welcome to the 21st century.
