Plod

"Plod" 
Judy Royal Glenn Photography 
 
My family and I went on a short weekend trip in search of waterfalls and beautiful fall foliage.  We hiked to Frolictown Falls, and the highlight of that trip for me was finding this dragonfly.
 
When I first spotted him, he was exactly how you see him in the photo.  I took several photos, and he did not move an inch.  So, I got out my macro lenses and got real close and hoped he wouldn't fly away.  He never moved. 
 
I don't remember him being there when I first got there, so I don't think he was dead.  I had to stand in freezing water to ge the shot, and I accidently splashed water on him while moving about.
 
  I named the photo "Plod" because it was the opposite of "frolic" since we were at Frolictown Falls and he was not frolicking.

Caught

 "Caught"

I like how a "caught" this little guy in the midst of his normal day of climbing things in the big world around him.

Dainty

There aren't many flowers that I would give the title "Dainty" to, but I thought this title seemed very fitting.

On Alert!

"On Alert!"

I believe this male Wilson's Plover was on alert because his nest may have been near by.

For A Moment

"For A Moment"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

Most of what I love to photograph, only stays still "for a moment."  The target is constantly moving and makes what I do a constant thrill and challenge, but I love it!  All photographers are trying though to capture that perfect moment, whether portraiture, architectural, landscape, sports, or many others.

At The Edge

"At The Edge"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

After chasing this Wilson's Plover around for a while, he stopped briefly at the edge of the water just long enough for me to get a good shot.
