Momma...


The botanical garden is open at 7:00 AM for members only on Sundays so I headed out early to see if those baby roadrunners had fledged yet.  They hadn't.  They were still in the nest but, they did look like they were getting a bit restless.  However, I was lucky enough to catch momma roadrunner bringing back a little breakfast for the kids!

I love that early morning "members only" period at the garden.  It's so quiet.  Just me and about 50 other camera laden photographers, some with lenses the size of a nice Harley-Davidson.

I did not know about the 7:00 am openings on Sundays for members, and we are members.

Brilliant capture Sharon, brekkie looks delicious :) The 150 to 600 zoom for my new camera is so small (about the size of a small can of red bull) and light, yet it does the same work as those huge lenses, so sweet.

That might be the least of this critter's problems.

You have to be fast on your feet to catch a lizard.
Hmmm....you're out taking pictures while I'm sitting in bed drinking coffee.

It appears you have discover Nirvana in your own backyard. I am loving getting to see roadrunners up close and intimate through your camera lens. Have a great week!. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
