Beep! Beep! Is that really a roadrunner! I've only ever seen the cartoon and it looks nothing like this. How lovely. It looks rather like a starling on steroids and this one's obviously on the lookout for Wile. Fantastic detail you've caught here and I love the processing and presentation. Congrats

That bird became worldwide famous in the cartoon with the coyote doing funny things Eleu. Good picture of that roadrunner, not easy to capture while moving, regards
