Torn (part II)

"Torn (part II)" 
Judy Royal Glenn Photography 

This is an Axis deer from Asia. They are different from the deer found in Georgia because they retain their spots throughout their life.

Notice the animal’s torn ear.

Along the Shore

"Along the Shore"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I found this reddish egret one morning on the beach at St. Simons Island, Georgia. When I first found him, he was looking for breakfast in the tide pools near the dunes.

This is my favorite photograph of him as he walked along the shore. It shows the huge waves crashing behind him.

Sweet Dreams


"Sweet Dreams"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
A fellow photographer and I met at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia yesterday to shoot. I was intending to photograph hummingbirds until my friend Heather mentioned she saw a sleeping bee.
While I was photographing the one she showed me, I told her to look for more. I enjoyed photographing the bees, but I had to be quick as the morning sun was waking them up:)

Underneath

"Underneath"

One of my favorite things to do when I go to Lake Junaluska is to photograph the swans. They have a favorite hangout spot and don't mind if I get near them. The swan spent an hour preening its feathers, so I had plenty of time to photograph him. This is my favorite shot:)

Jason’s Iris


"Jason’s Iris”

I have shared this photo before, but I want to put it on Instagram, so I am sharing it again.

This male ruby-throated hummingbird stopped by to feed on the Japanese iris. I now refer to the iris as Jason’s iris. Jason was a former worker at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. This was Jason’s favorite iris. He was tragically killed in a car accident in 2012.

Eye to Eye!

"Eye to Eye!"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I long to have the resources to travel the world taking photographs of nature and wildlife. It will happen one day, but until then, I am patient. I continue to photograph the beauty found in nature right here in Georgia, or wherever I do travel.

This photograph was taken at the Wild Animal Safari in Pine Mountain, Georgia. The animals roam freely and come to your car for a tasty bite of food. 

This giraffe walked up to my car and got so close I had to put on my micro lens.
My favorite part…..I can see my reflection in my eye!

Happy Fourth of July!

Caught on Camera

"Caught on Camera"

I will photograph any critter that walks, flies or freezes in front of my camera. This squirrel was caught on camera as he found a huge nut.

Hummingbird Trail Class Today at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia

"Hummingbird Trail Class Today at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I enjoyed teaching my class today "Where do the hummingbirds 'hide'?" at the Botanical Garden. Thanks to my friend Heather Lickliter Larkin for doing the Q & A for us! After class, we walked the trail and had fun watching the hummers chase each other.

Trail maps are available in the Visitor's Center. The hot spots today were markers # 11 and # 17 - # 19.

There seems to be a decline in the numbers of hummingbirds this year. Remember the females are nesting and on their nest most of the hour.

Join us for our next two rambles on July 30 and August 20 from 9-11 as we find the hummingbird's secret hiding places. Bring your cameras, binoculars, water, hat and sunscreen. Everyone is invited! Hope to see you there:) Registration and costs are on their website.
