Keeping Watch

“Keeping Watch”

Tree Swallow

A loan birdhouse hung from a large tree as a male tree swallow kept watch to keep away intruders. The birdhouse was prime real estate—the male bird knew it.

Winter Blues

Pipevine Swallowtail Butterfly

 I love the array of the beautiful creations the Lord made for us to see and photograph. This stunning creature is the pipevine swallowtail butterfly. I photographed it in September and think this may have been a first for me. They are beautiful!

Winter is a quieter time with my photography, as I do not shoot as often. These warm temperatures make me look forward to spring!

Favorite Critter

"Favorite Critter"

It won't be long before my favorite critter to photograph, the ruby-throated hummingbird, comes back to Georgia. I miss them so much and anticipate their return each year! It gives me something to look forward to as I do not like winter.

This photo was taken at Chamizal National Memorial Park in El Paso, Texas as I was visiting my daughter. The plant is the Texas Red Yucca.

I love Texas because they have tons of species of hummingbirds!

You Called?

"You Called?"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I met, Danny, a fellow photographer friend, at Berry College not long ago to photograph the deer. On a previous visit, Danny met a man named James who worked on the campus, and while we were there, we visited him.

As we were talking to James he said, “Wait a minute—I’ll be right back.” He went inside the building and when he came back, he had something in his hand. He shook it, and a group of deer appeared. It was a cup of dried corn.

If I understand the story right, someone who previously lived there fed the deer this way. The deer know when they hear that sound, they will get fed.

I sat with my tripod on the ground, and loved the beautiful background behind them as they lifted their heads after feeding. I can even see my reflection in the deer’s eye!

I wanted my first post of the new year to be encouraging. There are so many possibilities ahead, and I am excited to see what the Lord has in store for me.

I don't know what my future holds, but I trust the One who is in control of it!! Many blessing to you this year, and may it be the best year ever:)

Looking Forward to 2017

Immature White Ibis

I love photography so much because I never know what I will find. I pray and ask the Lord to show me or to bring to me what He wants me to photograph. He blesses me all the time, and I am hardly disappointed.

Oh, the stories of neat miracles I could share with you!
Happy New Year!!
