A bird born to run, the Greater Roadrunner can outrace a human, kill a rattlesnake, and thrive in the harsh landscapes of the Desert Southwest. Roadrunners reach two feet from sturdy bill to white tail tip, with a bushy blue-black crest and mottled plumage that blends well with dusty shrubs. As they run, they hold their lean frames nearly parallel to the ground and rudder with their long tails. They have recently extended their range eastward into Missouri and Louisiana.
Greater Roadrunners are large cuckoos with a distinctive shape: long legs, a very long, straight tail, and a long neck. The head has a short crest and the bill is long, heavy, and slightly downcurved.

Excellent capture of the bird in running.

Bonjour Peter,
Bonne coordination de la vitesse et de la profondeur de champ permettant d'apprécier le sujet dans une attitude originale.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Excellent action shot of a well known bird but seldom seen in action. Sharp where it counts and nice bokeh in the background.

the road runner in full speed - what a moment and in a perfect quality. Thanks a lot
Pierre
