You were certainly lucky this time! This is a splendid capture of the Roadrunner up in a tree! I like its pose and profile. Nicely lit from behind although a bit dark. Good focus, sharp details and fine colours too. Well done!
Many thanks, Ulla

Excellent roadrunner Billy...This is a striking pose for it and not one i have seen..I usually see them on the ground...interesting..I had wondered a bit about the ability of its agile body..Very nice!

Fine capture of a Road Runner, unusually up a tree! Technically this shot is of a high standard in all respects and the composition with the branches of the tree very pleasing.
Well done and thanks for sharing this,

Aand a grand photo of this elusive bird it is! I chased the same Roadrunner during elementary school in Las Vegas for a year, just close enough to begin to reach out and ten paces beyond he ran, and again for a year. Great fun!!!

The most striking thing about this great shot is the reflective symetry between the bird's body and the branch - excellent. Good detail and colour on the bird under what were obviously tricky conditions.

Difficult to expose the bird with this side away from the light, and a bright BG. You did very well to get this one under the circumstances, great catch & TFS!

I love the silhouette this bird cuts.
A wonderful pose and diagonal composition.
The POV and DOF are excellent.
Very good focus and sharpness.

You're a man who knows how fast a roadrunner is! Thank you for this picture, I love those birds and I think the cartoons helped us know them! It is more beautiful than I thought it was and you sure managed to capture it. Thank you!

Ah I like this bird ! Thanks Billy for this great shot ! It reminds me of my late brother Richard who had a '68 Plymouth Road Runner, it was bright yellow ! Great memories for me ! Your shot is really good, very sharp and clear, well done my friend ! Thanks,

Good profile perspective and pose. Sharpness is perfect for the DOF.
It is harder to get a decent picture of a roadrunner than it is for Wile E. Coyote to catch one. :)
