Desert Kaleidoscope

I captured several satisfying images of a roadrunner as he darted by in pursuit of a lizard or whatever a roadrunner eats! This one I especially enjoy for the kaleidoscope-like bokeh effect in the background, while the roadrunner emerges into focus with even his tiniest feathers rim lit by the sunlight.

Early this past spring I headed outdoors to photograph a white egret that had been hanging around our property. The egret never cooperated, staying far out of range of my camera lens, but a roadrunner on the hunt showed up instead. I captured several satisfying images of him as he darted by in pursuit of a lizard or whatever a roadrunner eats! I especially enjoy this capture for the kaleidoscope-like effect of the background created by the lens bokeh, while the roadrunner emerges into focus with even his tiniest feathers rim lit by the sunlight.
