I haven't seen such a bird? before. I bet it was fun trying to capture his pictures. ;-)

Oooh, good captures, in all facets!

Lindy MacDuff said...

Any bird that can take on a rattlesnake is okay in my book! Really like the reflection capture. Excellent!

Great post! Roadrunners are so changeable. The first time I saw one all puffed up I couldn't figure out what it was.

The roadrunner photos are wonderful! The roadrunner with it's reflection formed a nice shape. The roadrunner in the first photo looks funny. I like the quotes. Many years ago I read an article about roadrunner in an old National Geographic magazine. It's an interesting bird.

Stephanie said...
