Here is my entry for Granny Shot It’s Bird of the Day (BOTD) challenge.
Trying to get a picture of this guy was like chasing down a speeding bullet. The Greater Roadrunner is like “The Roadrunner” in the cartoons. They are fast. If you blink, they will disappear in a flash. Taunted me just like The Roadrunner taunted the Wiley Coyote. He was moving through the common areas at Floyd Lamb Park outside Las Vegas like a ball in a pinball machine leaving me excited & frustrated at the same time. I used to see these in Texas when I was a kid, but this was special. Got really close to him. He purposefully wouldn’t stay still. He darted around bushes and every time I raised my camera, he would move to the right & then to left. He would stare straight at me until he dared me to lift my lens. I was just waiting to look behind me to see a box of TNT ready to go BOOM! Beep beep!
