Taken the same day as the rabbit image. I was hoping to see some coyotes or bobcats, but not today. This roadrunner came out of nowhere. He seemed to be watching something in bushes… no doubt looking for food.

A long-time passion, I’ve held a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. Capturing “the moment” is my goal, whether it be people, wildlife or a beautiful Arizona sunset. I am originally from NYC but now live in the desert southwest.
Thank you for viewing my images… I hope that you enjoy!
