this is a photo that can not be ignored,no way and no how!I know this bird species as probably one of this planet's rarest ones, if not the rarest.I think that you are are so very fortunate to have had the chance to have photoed it and seen it with your own eyes.Sure it is not a pretty bird as far as looks are concerned but I do know to see one in flight is one nature's masterworks.The details are very good and so is the colour and the crop gives a very decent view.Thanks for sharing what is so very rare it almost is hard to believe.For all of you here on TN,try and find a creature like this one at least once in your life,good luck if you do as your chances of getting hit by lightning are so very much greater.

Welcome to TN!
You start your jouney on TN with a remarkable shot that deserves more attention.
Not only is this a fine capture of a bird not shown before on TN but of one of the rarest in the world and taken in the wild, even though it has been tamed by human presence. Congratulations on both counts!
The technical features are excellent and we can see details of this rarity with good sharpness.
Well done Ray: I look forward to seeing more from you!

Welcome on Treknature ;-) Very nice shot. I like OOF background. Sharpness is also very good. Nicely composed and I like the relatively tight crop

Hello Ray , A Great shot from this condor , goos sharpnes details colours and pose ,Greetings Teunie ,And welcom to tn .
My goodness! I can't believe you got this close to a condor!!!. I hiked up to the high trail at Pinnacles park in central California... twice! just to see them... and no one was home!!! I know they raise condors in captivity but they are pretty careful to use puppets etc so they don't imprint on humans. This is a great shot. This fellow almost looks kind of cute.. and that is saying something for a condor.
Welcome to TN. You are starting off with a bang!
