Wow! Outstanding portrait of this Roadrunner! Like the Coyote, this is one local bird who continues to elude my lens. Congratulations on the capture and all the well deserved features!
Now this is how to photograph birds, close-up and personal. Nice capture, Lisa.

Thank-you Marilyn!! Much appreciated!!
Wonderfully detailed and crisp capture! Beautiful! L/F
Excellent detail here. My wife's uncle would bet people that he could catch a roadrunner by hand. He could.. The secret, let them fly three times, tire out, and then carefully pick up.
Wow!! I'll remember that... but, think I'll stick to "catching" with a camera.
Congrats on your features of this stunning close-up.

I must confess that for many years I did not give much attention to birds. In my childhood we had parakeets (blue and green) at our house and I liked them a lot. Maybe 4 years ago a canary showed up at my door and I kept it. That's how I fell in love with birds. I spent a lot of time reading about them and watching our national photographers' photos. There are so many. To identify them is a challenge. We also don't have roadrunners but I have read about this species. It's a very curious bird!
Thanks for sharing! Quite prehistoric in appearance. Fun to watch.
