Hello Howard

Héhéhé (laughing) before reading the tilte
when i saw the thumbnail of this roadrunner
in my thoughts it came the coyote.

Great close-up shot with the frontal POV
giving beautiful eye-contact, with great
focus, sharpness and details of the plumage, TFS

Hello Howard,
Another winner of a shot!! I really like this frontal view and the way the tail feathers stand straight up.
I have only seen this bird a few times while traveling the Western States, and most of those had a baby bird or some other prey in their beaks. Well done!!

Hello Howard
Beautiful pose and great photo with very good composition, wonderful colors and impressive sharpness.

Hello Howard,
Very vivid and interesting picture of this very special and funny bird. I never have seen Roadrunners, but I imagine that it might be quite exciting. Well framed and photographed as usual.
Kind regards

Nice caption and POV Howard!
The technical standard is top and the pose great with nice Eye Contact. Almost a compensation for us Europeans that have never seen a Roadrunner in real Life!
Thanks for sharing this my friend,
