Photo of the Week: The Roadrunner & The Lizard

Roadrunner with lizard graces a Tucson, AZ mailbox

In the cartoons on Saturday morning, it's the Coyote who chases the Roadrunner, but ends up hungry.  "Meep! Meep!"  In the desert southwest that's my back yard, I often see both the coyote and the roadrunner within yards of each other, both intent on a meal, but neither hunting the other.

The roadrunner, in its hunt for prey, will often "put up" a rabbit in which it has no interest.  The coyote has learned this, and uses that knowledge to his benefit. 

Aren't you glad you don't subsist on snakes, lizards, scorpions and spiders?  No matter what "lizard" you're hunting for this weekend, I wish you success!
