    Wile E. Coyote Was Nowhere to be Seen

    I had to drop my SUV off at a local shop for some work this morning, and I had some company for part of the one mile walk back to my apartment...

    Actually, a pretty grainy crop from a cell phone photo, but he was walking the same direction as me on the other side of the street, so I couldn't resist trying to grab a few snapshots. I saw what I'm guessing was the same roadrunner in the same neighborhood a week or so ago, so chances are we'll cross paths again.
