Pictures of the Elusive Roadrunner

This post contains affiliate links.

This bird had been taunting me for weeks and has frequented our community for at least a few months.  There are a pair of roadrunners that I always see in the very early morning or evening hours running up and down the street but my camera was never handy.

My wife finally pointed out he was in our yard, and I grabbed my camera with telephoto lens.  As I opened the front door he started running and I was just able to snap off a few shots with 2 of the 4 being too blurry to post.

This bird is fast on foot, seriously fast and hard to shoot and track with a zoom lens.


He paused only briefly in the street as if to smirk at me after realizing I took his picture.
