ROADRUNNER "BEEP BEEP"

No, I didn't see Wylie Coyote chasing this guy. The bird was so fast and he kept trying to hide from me. I had never seen a Roadrunner before, and I almost didn't get him this time. I know its not a great photo but I was excited about seeing this bird for myself. He is quite large with a long tail and big, sharp beak.
Beep Beep.
This is in reference to an old USA cartoon.

I love it! They are very interesting birds. I bet they are hard to photograph.

Thanks everyone for your comments.
yep, I do love the old cartoons and I think I heard the beep beep only in my head. Don't know what type of sound this critter makes.

Very good capture!
It seems quite different from the cartoon roadrunner though! I was fooled all my childhood!!!
