Majestic Creature

"Majestic Creature"

Remember this little fellow I found back in 2016? The link to that post can be found here. 

Well, I've got some neat news to share with you. I finally got the software to edit my videos, and on the day I took this barred owl's photograph, I also took video of him too.


In this video, you can see him peacefully resting under a tree.

In this YouTube video, I talk during the video explaining how the Lord helped me find the barred owl.

I thought it was the perfect color on the perfect day to share this photograph of a red tulip. It had been hiding in my files for almost a full year! Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!!

A Forest of Trees

“A Forest of Trees”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

It looks like a forest of trees growing on this soap bubble:) What do you see?

Watching the bubbles starting to freeze is truly amazing. I put a video of it on YouTube. My how-to directions are written in the Youtube description, and I list two recipes that I use.

If you have never seen a video of it start to freeze, you will be glad you did:) If you missed my last post about frozen soap bubbles, click here. An earlier post of a frozen soap bubble can be found here. Or if you would like to go straight to my YouTube page to see the video click here.

Here is my favorite recipe for frozen soap bubbles. I don't like adding sugar because it sometimes shows up in the bubble. The recipe is: 6 parts water, 2 parts dish soap,1 part white corn syrup
(The small batch I make is: 1 ½ c. water, ½ c. dish soap, ¼ c. corn syrup)

Lesser or Greater?


“Lesser or Greater?”
Lesser Scaup
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

Identifying birds is a challenging task for me. There are slight changes amongst a species that makes them different. 
  
The key that helped me identify this bird as a lesser scaup verses a greater scaup was the skinnier black marking on his bill. There are other subtle differences in the head shape and other characteristics that were too difficult for me to distinguish.

“A Masterpiece” - The video - YouTube video of how to video frozen soap bubbles.

“A Masterpiece” - My YouTube Video
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I am sharing my frozen soap bubble photograph again to give a perspective of my YouTube video. This is the final product of a soap bubble freezing during the winter. It has amazing crystal structures that start growing larger until they all intersect.
Watching soap bubbles freeze is magical. Bubbles themselves are miracles.

If you would like to learn how to make a video like this, you can visit my YouTube channel you can click the video above. In the description under the video on YouTube, I listed how to video the bubbles as they start to freeze and the recipe I used. I will post more videos on my YouTube channel later and list another recipe I like.
