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.

Reflections

"Reflections"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

Our challenge this past month for the Athens Photography Guild was reflections. I was excited when I got to the Biltmore Estate because I knew there were ponds of water that host water lilies.
This is my image I shared with the group:)

Caddy Wonky

"Caddy Wonky?"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
As I look at this snowy egret, I notice his legs are caddy wonky. One leg is going in one direction, and the other is a different direction. Maybe it's because I moved and he decided to change directions.

I don't know if I made up this term or if I am spelling it right. Google does not recognize it. Anyone ever heard this term?

Swimming On A Canvas Of Oil

"Swimming On A Canvas Of Oil"

I love this photograph of the baby duck, but I also love the background. The water looks like a mixture of green and blue oil paints swirled together on a canvas.

Ibu and Khalessi

"Ibu and Khaleesi"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

This is Ibu and Khalessi. They live at the El Paso Zoo. Ibu is a great mom to let her little one hang all over her. Notice how Khalessi is grabbing a hand full of hair.

This photo was taken one month before her birthday. She was born on April 23, 2015. They celebrated her birthday in connection with Earth Day. There was even a gift registry for people to buy her enrichment toys.

Isn't she cute?
