I've spent a lot of time in the Canyon hoping to see a condor, but not yet. Maybe this summer. You're very priveleged. Nice, nice shot!
How did you get so close?
I think it was lots of luck, anyway if I wasn't so curios I could pass condors very easy
One of the things that helped drive this species nearly to extinction is that they have little fear of people. I, too, have been this close to one, and had mixed feelings about whether or not I wanted it to fly away.
We saw 3 of the things circling above at the same spot you took these. They are enormous and rare, must have been quite a moment.
Awesome photo! The only place I've seen condors is near Big Sur, CA - we saw 10 or so but I didn't get any neat up close shots like you did.
He is a beautiful bird; love this shot.
I've seen a few condors in the Pinnacles (and heard a few stories about people being dive bombed by them while climbing) but haven't been able to take any pictures. They are amazing birds to see.
What a bird! Nice Shot! What camera did you use?
it's simple 8 mp Pentax camera witch have 3x optical zoom
He is adorable!!!! :)! Great shot!
I finally found my younger brother
here on Summitpost !!! !!!
Salut! am fost un pic surprins cand am observat ca fotograful e domiciliat in Deva. Am stat acolo 12 ani, acolo am inceput si am terminat scoliile. Primele ore de urcat stanci am luat pe Cetate...acum i-mi pare, ca nu sant singurul cu aceasta...
Cele mai bune din Budapesta.
Si eu tot prin Deva am inceput sa ma catar, cam pe la inceputul anilor '90 , si acum mai tin minte mansele urcate pe stanca de pe Cetate.
Not much to eat there!
