projects

During the month of August, the roadrunners on a golf course near South Mountain feast on the exploding population of dragon flies. I noticed one particularly large roadrunner took the same path every afternoon to arrive on the fairway where it would hunt. In order to photograph the roadrunner without spooking it, I chose a place on the fairway where I could lay in the grass and wait for it to be near enough to photograph. The bird had been very consistent for at least a week before, so I was certain my position on the fairway would pay off. After a short wait, I could see the roadrunner approaching in the distance. As more time passed, and the roadrunner was not where it usually was, I decided to check on my camera equipment many yards away near a pond. To my surprised, there was the roadrunner also checking out the equipment; too far away to photograph. So I followed it and eventually shot what is the first image in the gallery on this page.
