Gesture?

"Gesture?"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
 
As I have been observing hummingbirds, I have noticed two different hummingbirds making this gesture.  I haven't been able to figure it out.  Is the hummer giving a sign to other hummers or simply stretching?

Stained

Even though this flower is "stained," I don't think it takes away from its beauty.....I think it actually adds to it.

Alone

"Alone" 
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
 
It was a cold drizzly morning when we passed this tree while driving down in a rural road.  I liked it so much I asked my husband if we could turn around, so I could take some photos.

 
While processing it, I played around with the color of the photo.

Untouched

"Untouched" 
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
 
I usually do a good amount of post-processing to my photos.  For this photo I decided to basically leave it "Untouched."  I made a very small crop to take out a branch, but enjoyed the flower and photo as I remembered taking it.  It was just a very simple bush, but once I got down real low, I saw the simple beauty of the flower with the sky in the background.

Untrodden

"Untrodden"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
 
I have been wanting to adventure out of my comfort zone of nature photography and venture into landscape photography.  With photographying birds and flowers, it is very comfortable for me.  I am out of my element with landscape photography, and it is uncomfortable.  I know with time it will be easier.  I am excited to jump into this whole new world:)

Boo

"Boo" 
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
 
My assistant photographer Boo (my dog) followed me outside to help me for the Digital Photography School's Weekly Photography Challenge.  The theme was titled, "backyard."  There wasn't much to photograph, so Boo became my subject in the front yard:) 
 
P.S. The special words to get her to tilt her head are squirrel and treat!!

Flatter

"Flatter"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
 
In my opinion, when I look at this photograph, one flower is incomplete without the other; one compliments the other.  I looked up the word compliment and found the words flatter, praise, and congratulate.  Very fitting!

His Favorite Branch

"His Favorite Branch"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
 
I posted earlier in the summer a female Ruby-throated hummingbird's favorite branch; now I wanted to post the immature males favorite branch.  I spent a lot of my summer at The State Botanical Garden of Georgia.   So much so that I knew where the hummingbird's favorite perches were throughout the garden. 
 
I knew where his favorite branch was, so I set my tripod up real close in hopes he would not mind. 
 
One time the hummer landed on a branch five feet above my head to check me out.

Through The Light

"Through The Light"  
Judy Royal Glenn Photography 
 
I usually do not photograph many crawly creatures.  I found this Daddy longleg meandering about on a wall.  The way the light hit him caught my eye.  I had to pick him up several times in hopes in would walk though the light again.  After I left him alone, and he stopped at the end of the wall where I captured this shot.
 
After viewing him up close, I discovered they are weird creatures!  Click on the photo for a closer view:)

Love At First Sight!

"Love At First Sight!"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
 
It was love at first sight when I saw this donkey!  I was headed down a long winding road with my family to take photos of waterfalls.  We came upon a pasture that had this donkey, two horses, and a miniature horse.  This donkey stole my heart especially when he peered through the fence straight into my eyes!
