February 26, 2017 (Santee) — John Locke of Santee was jogging Friday morning on Park Center Drive south of Riverwalk Drive on the east side of Town Center Community Park in Santee when he spotted this Greater Roadrunner running along the top of the wooden fence alongside the park property.

“He paused and looked at me, almost like he was posing, so I took a quick picture using my phone,” says Locke. “I checked the settings and when I looked up, he was gone. I thought of your Best Photos feature and wanted to submit the picture. I think it can remind us that in spite of the city's growing residential and business infrastructure, Santee stays in touch with nature.”
