Condors at Antisana, Ecuador

It has been some time before I have been able to get these pictures processed and up here. Condors are not very common in Ecuador, but on this day back in March I was lucky enough not just to see one, but 13! The birds were feeding on a dead cow at a considerable distance, so frame-filling shots of them feeding were not possible. However, every moment watching them was wonderful, and the day at the Antisana Reserve provided many other great photographic opportunities.
