14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Condor Watchers at Colca Canyon, Peru

It was a great day at Colca Canyon for condor viewing. At least half a dozen condors circled overhead for about an hour. I was tracking several of them, and, in this shot, the condor flew overhead just above a ridge with many spectators. I think the photo captures the relative size of the bird as well as the excitement of the day.
