Default Roadrunner

We went back out messing around in the mountains after church this morning....this afternoon we were greeted by an extremely docile roadrunner (Geococcyx californianus)...he let me walk slowly up to a distance of about 8 feet, and posed for a few pics...I have never seen one who would let you get so close...he stayed there for a good minute while I snapped a few pics....









These were only shot with an 18X55 mm lens...and a Canon EOS 20D Digital

Good photos! I had no idea Arkansas was home to roadrunners.

Yessir Weas....we have quite a few.

Our wildlife is very diversified here, except badgers, antelope, Grizzlies, Moose, lynx or wolverine....most other relatively common north American species are present here to some degree....not all but most.

that is pretty close especially using just a 18-55 .Must be local
that's use to humans. I tried with 150-600 Tamron at 600mm wouldn't let me get closer. Nice shots

Great photos! The only other Roadrunner I have seen that would let you get that close was begging french fries in a Burger King parking lot in Tuscon, AZ.

Thanks for sharing.
