Rawr goes the Condor by DeeOtter Rawr goes the Condor by DeeOtter
Andy being goofy. I think he was in the middle of a yawn. I thought he was in the process of coughing up a pellet, but it looks like it was just his tongue.

Andean condor

What a face. Needs a "wicked laugh" track to accompany it.

Beautiful photo, I love the pure white background behind him, and the colors on the bird itself are superb. The focus is great, as is the composition, and even being on hydrocodone for a severely in pain ankle, I still laughed quite a bit when I saw it. Very well done :)

:D Thank you very much! The sun helped a bit with lightning up some of the enclosure bars. But he does get to go on walks (seriously!) so I have a few pictures of him where I don't have to worry about encouraging bars :D
Hopefully the ankle pain goes away soon.
