It’s darn right amazing what the world about us looks like through a 300 mm lense, here I was litterly chasing this New Mexico RoadRunner around the neighborhood, when I realized that it was not one but three, make a fool of me, I wondered how it was getting around so quickly, well ! from on top of neighbors roof to the ground is about 3 second’s, since it is a bird that doesn’t fly, it ’s like the flying squirrel, has a decent gluide path ! As i made my way to where it landed, suddenly distracted by this unusual bush, So I did have to get across the street to take the picture , that I wanted to capture, I crossed my finger and eyes, in hopes that I could stop the effects of the inconsistant breeze, Minimal post process, amazing at 24 foot away, leaning against tree, (my monopod)! oh well ! sharing the smile is fun ! Albuquerque, New Mexico USA. May Blooms !
