Hi Thijs,
Donderdag heb ik geprobeerd hem in de vlucht te fotograferen, maar dat was nog niet direct een succes. Je zat blijkbaar helemaal beneden bij de show. Fraaie scherpe foto in het mooie licht van deze week. Leuke pose met oogcontact.

Hi Thijs
Wow, what huge feet this young condor has, I can only imagine how much large they will get as he matures. A wonderful capture with fine detail.
