Roadrunner, Geococcyx californius, in an Albuquerque, NM driveway pauses, alert and crouched for danger, after it has cracked open a snail shell so it can eat the snail inside.  The broken snail shell can be seen on the edge of the roadrunner's shadow behind the exposed snail. Sequence 4 of 6, roadrunner lunch.
