Capturing The Moment — Roadrunner By Name   3 comments

Roadrunner (Chaparral Cock) in Sabino Canyon, October 27, 2011 — Image by kenne

Born to run
Flying short distances only

Named for speed
Designed for racing

Laughed at by many
A coyote’s nemesis

Roadrunner by name
SafeSearch off

Chaparral Cock the same
SafeSearch strict

In the tree of life
A five-minute “silent witness”

  3. Chips,

    With this exception, my roadrunner photos are not showing their color — guess they are not trying to impress me. I will let you know when I post yesterday’s photos.

    Thanks for the follow-up.
