Beep Beep!


He came back! Geococcyx californianus, the Greater Roadrunner, paid me another visit today. The first three shots were taken through my screen/storm door, and the rest through the dining room window.

Oops . . . wait a minute . . .

Can you tell the photographer was a little overexcited?

Hm. Through the screen. Still not so good.

OK, let’s try standing on a chair. Please don’t move, Bird.

That’s better!

Now you see him . . .

Now you don’t!

Yep — he’s that fast.

Isn’t he handsome?

The white and orange behind his eye identifies him as an adult male.

The classic pose

One more look . . .

And off he goes.

Thanks, Bird. You made my day!

  1. Yay! You got pictures of the roadrunner (Hot-rodicus supersonicus)and you didn’t require a rocket, an anvil or jet powered roller skates. He’s really cool! I hope you see more of him.

  2. I was looking for the cloud of dust he leaves behind as he runs off….

    How fun to see these wonders of your little new world!

  3. Cool beans Leon. That acme camera IS working. You need to teach the cayote a thing or two.

  4. Great job catching that Roadrunner – your new neighbor! (This is why I don’t take photos of things that move 🙂

  5. Great captures of your friend, the roadrunner! What a fun subject. Have a relaxing weekend!

  6. Cool shots of your road runner friend. He is quite handsome.

  7. How fun!! He came back and you got some great shots!! I hope he returns often to brighten you day! I guess it’s the connection to the cartoon, but these guys just make me laugh! “Beep, beep!”

  8. I don’t know about that fast crowd you’re hanging with since the move back to California!! Great photos!

  9. Great photos. If he knows you are an admirer, he may be back again and again.

  10. Great photos and comments…beep beep!!!

  11. Oh how cool! Now that would make my day but we don’t have those here in Indiana. I love your sense of humor with ‘now you see him’ and now you don’t’ 🙂

  12. I love all these shots of the Roadrunner… I remember the cartoon! I’ll bet you had fun capturing him with your camera!

I'd love to hear your thoughts.
