Punk Rock Yearling!

“Punk Rock Yearling!”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I put more effort than normal to photograph this yearling black bear cub. While standing at end of Sparks Lane, someone mentioned a mamma bear and her two cubs were at the other end of Sparks.

There was a major problem. I was parked past Sparks on the one-way Loop Road and could not turn around. So, I did what most crazy photographers do, I ran down the long, hot road.

I knew another major problem was ahead. A deep creek was between the bears and me. So, I did what most crazy photographers would do, I took off my socks and boots and crossed the creek.

The bears were right where the couple mention. They were in a field foraging for food. I stood behind the fence and enjoyed watching them just be bears.

To make the story end even better, I saw two friends who gave me a ride back to my car. I was very thankful because it was a hot day and I was flushed!

Don’t you love his punk rock hairdo?

Waitin’ on Ma!

"Waitin’ on Ma!"

This little fellow waited quite a while for his mom to come back while I was at Berry College. I kinda felt like I was fawn sitting. I watched her look everywhere for him, but she did not see him hidden in the grass. 

I tried to get her attention to no avail. Funny thing—deer do not understand hand signals and what pointing means. After almost two hours, I left. I knew she would eventually find him.

I loved watching this baby swan bob up and down while he looked for food. It seemed like the perfect video to share for a Wednesday!

Peering Through the Fog

I always get excited when I see the horses out in the pasture in Cades Cove. This particular morning, the fog was thick and made for the perfect scenery!
