Amazing portrait of this Condor!
Great POV to got the details and texture of the skin, they are almost umbelievables...and that white hair over the black plumage makes an excellent contrast.
I was on last December on an Andean trek, but never seen this Condor...I think they are in danger of extintion. I remember several years ago they tryed to repopulate the venezuelan Andes with that specie.
You are lucky to have one in that cantre, because here in Venezuela I never have seen this bird in any zoo.
Congratulations for the post, thanks for share the photo and my best regards,
