Condors in Patagonia!

Condor_zoomed (7)This is a shot of Alejandro Galilea the owner the estancia where we go to shoot Andean Condors (Vultur gryphus). Alejandro goes by the name of Jano and I call him the Condor whisperer. He grew up on this ranch and seems to be able to attract the Condors in. It’s certain they all know him well and understand he poses no threat. On this particular day these massive birds put on a beautiful aerial show for us but, with overcast skies and low light, it was tough to get many good sharp images. However, I did manage to nail a couple shots.
