Roda’s Critter Connection, Winter Edition!

I really lucked into this one! I was sitting in our front room and this roadrunner hopped up on the wall in the back yard. He ran along the top and hung out just long enough for me to grab a picture.

It has been cold, by Tucson standards, and we have not seen a whole lot of critters, so this was a gift!

Have a great week everyone 🙂

Roda’s Critter Connection, Fall Edition

Now that I have returned to Tucson, Arizona I have been able to locate some critters again! The weather in Redmond, Washington is too cold, wet and dark for most animals to be running around but here in Tucson, I am having better luck!

Our son is done with his fall semester and he has not seen our new home here in Tucson yet. So he and I are setting out to do some rock climbing over the Christmas holiday, but our first stop was a quick hike in Sabino Canyon.

We happened across this road runner, who was stalking something and ran out in front of us.

He was moving fast, and this was the best of the two shots I got before he disappeared!

We are heading to Sheepshead to climb Ewphoria and I hope to see some more critters 🙂
