2021—A Live Cartoon

The Greater Roadrunner was thirsty on our last afternoon in the blinds in South Texas. He visited the water several times during the afternoon, beginning and ending our day. It was perhaps more than one that made an appearance for us, so we had lots of opportunities to photograph Roadrunners. A very fast and animated bird, it is easy to see how Warner Bros. created their cartoon facsimiles of Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote for its Looney Toons series. This shot made me laugh and it seems almost as cartoonish as the roadrunner cartoon character himself.
