I photographed these mating Greater Roadrunners at the parking lot by the visitor center at Joshua Tree National Park, California on April 20, 2013. The male Roadrunner was holding a lizard in his beak for the whole duration of the act and then presented the prey to the lady bird immediately after he finished his business. She gratefully accepted and started eating it on the spot.
