As we travelled to Patagonia we've been told that with a lot of luck we'll see Condors. But as we stood in front of the Perito Moreno glacier in southern Argentina three Condors circled above our heads. Most people of our hiking group pointed their cameras upwards, just as we did. But it was not easy, although the large birds floated majestically over the ice they still were fast.
I've been lucky because one of the trio suddenly flew in our direction and right above me, only 10 meters away. One of the photos I took you see here, I even managed to get a bit of the snowy mountains into the frame. This works very well as it "earthens" the Condor and gives a good scale of its size.
In reality it was very impressive, just imagine that bird with its 3 meters of wingspan flying close above you and looking at you. Add the huge wall of ice of the Perito Moreno glacier in front of you and only minutes later a large block of ice broke off and fell into the lake. Wonderful scenery and impressions!
