Always admired these birds, from afar.
You've captured this one beautifully.
Beautiful details, colours, composition
Love the pose. Looks ready for action.

Thank you so much for the uplifting comments, Richard.

Great shot.

Good thing you took three shots and not two.

Ha, ha...good point. Thank you Archi.

Magnificent shot, Shalu. Those red eyes are so cool looking.

Thank you very much, Mike!

Greater Roadrunner

Yesterday was the only opportunity I've ever had to shoot a roadrunner. He was hauling @ss and stopped momentarily, allowing me to fire off 3 frames. Two were immediately trashed, and this is the only one I kept. It's not the greatest, but I'm just glad to have finally had a shot at one. Now it's off to find Wile E. Coyote  :p.

Congrats, Mike! I hope to see one someday.

Love the composition of these two. Both colourful and very natural looking.

Love the earthy colours. So clear and crisp
Very nice

My first day out with camera and lens in many weeks. Nice to see some spring Cattle Egrets in George Bush Park.

One day, one day I am hoping to be that lucky. They move so dang fast that by the time I reach for the camera, they are long gone.
