My Monday post about what is going on around my home....
Two Roadrunners that have been zooming around my home.
Sorry the photo is somewhat blurry but they always seen to know when I
am trying to take their photo and then they move, cheeky little devils.
Plus my camera decided to focus on the tree.
I adore the stylish blue legs ! I know when they are young they have
a patch of blue skin by their eyes that becomes white when they get
older but the blue legs I have not seen before.
Some things I love about roadrunners. . .
They belong to the Cuckoo family
When they run they flatten out like an arrow
They eat all sorts of small reptiles including my most despised
scorpions and rattlesnakes
Can run at speeds up to 25 mph and you will see them racing down the
road in front of a car before zooming off to the side.
An old frontier tale was they would lead lost travelers to trails.
The Hopi believe the Roadrunner protects against evil spirits, I am
so glad I have them cruising around my home as I need all the help I
can get !
Beep Beep !
I am such a fan of cartoon The Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote and I
loved the ideas that Wile came up with to catch the Roadrunner !

update... the fires are still burning and some progress on the Murphy fire, and Horseshoe 2 fire. Wallow is still growing and if you can believe it someone just started a fire near Serra Vista.
