I had only faint hopes of seeing, no less photographing a Road Runner while in the southwest. This fellow came along through the camp and was very tolerant of having me hovering around clicking away. Obviously he is use to people.
I then went back into my quest of getting a decent shot of the Vermilion Flycatcher.
I don't know who this is unless it is his girl friend.
And this little fellow was in the pond along the Nature Trail.
Finally there was the Common Black Hawk which is very uncommon to this area. The park service had roped off a large area in the meadow as this pair were attempting to set up housekeeping.
Above and below is the male...
...and this the female...I think. It may be the other way around.
