Awesome! Never seen one of those.

Doesn't look at all like the cartoon.

Fantastic photos, FB!

Thanks for posting. I wish my P-850 photos were that sharp.

Great shots.

I especially like the second one. It is amazing that a little critter like that will puff up rather than back down from a person that outweighs them by a factor of over 100. I trust you were duly intimidated.

Do they often let you get that close?

slipe... Albuquerque is like many rapidly expanding cities that are suffering from uncontrolled, poorly planned "suburban sprawl". The developers are pushing further and further westward into former open desert, displacing the natural homes of jackrabbits, coyote and roadrunners. (I was out photographing a model home in one such subdivision today.) So the birds have adapted to hunting for lizards and snakes in people's front yards. Like pigeons in the big cities, they will often let you get as close as 10 feet. All schoolchildren here are taught: if a wild animal lets you get TOO close without running away, DON'T GO NEAR IT....it probably has the bubonic plague.
