Greater Roadrunner Hues
In certain lighting conditions, the peacock-like colors of the Greater Roadrunner appear. Note the shades of blue and green of the feathers and the purplish-blue highlights of the head crest. Of course, the reddish-orange streak behind the eye is a well-known feature. The lizard was likely an offering from this male roadrunner to a mate. Taken in Lordsburg, New Mexico.
