The Road Runner.

By johnke
A Spotted Dikkop at full speed. Rarely flies but prefers to spend its time on the ground. It lays its eggs on the bare ground and any Animal or Human that approaches the nest is greeted by a full out dive bomb attack.

Good Morning to everyone, thank you very much for your support, comments and your much appreciated UA's, Dave, John, Bill, JohnM, Johnsd and Mike thank you .

Super capture, John. Despite the fact this fascinating bird is moving quickly, you have caught the eye detail and plumage patterning perfectly. By its colouring, I would imagine this bird is a real camouflage artist!
