  11. Roadrunner begging

    Roadrunner begging

    The challenge was, keep her at least 23 ft. back, my minimum digiscoping focus distance.. they learn begging quickly in touristy areas of Arizona, and she seemed a little intimidating to me, a stranger to those parts. The desert made a lovely even background.

    Roadrunner, avoiding the roads!

    I have seen literally hundreds of roadrunners driving around these Mexican back roads, and still feel that I have not gotten "That One" image...this one is pretty close. I was sitting on a water hole, way out in the La Paz desert, shooting Xanthus's Hummingbirds when this Roadrunner...

    Climbing to new heights - Greater Roadrunner

    We ran across this Road Runner way out in the middle of some very dry, almost barren desert area. While the Roadrunner is for the most part pretty common here, what made this one so unique, was that he was nearly 30 feet up in the air, on top of that Cordon cactus!

    Busy at work today. I'll have to catch up on browsing later. Just taking a quick break to post farewell images of three of my lifers from that trip to NM. One more lifer for a first and final post tomorrow, then it's back to Norwegian birds for a while.

    Meep-meep!

    Finally! Proof that I've actually been in New Mexico :D There was one stretch of the tour loop through the Bosque that we on one of that morning tour seminar (the one with the morning cranes and the resting owl) learned to call "Roadrunner Alley". One was reputedly a patient poser, but...
