Flushed

"Flushed"

I was stalking a bird as usual, and this Great Egret was flushed out of a creek by two college girls while they were running.  He flew to the top of this bush which was a better shot.  Sometimes people can help your photos.

My husband saw this Red-tailed Hawk (immature) on our trip back home yesterday.  My family helps me with my photography by spotting things for me.  We turned back around, and I started taking pictures of him while my husband kept moving the car closer and closer.
 
 
He then flew to the top of a power pole.
 
 
 
I was interrupting his dinner plans.
 
 
 
He was keeping a close eye on me.
 
 
He flew across the road and landed on a tree.  We moved closer, and he had enough and finally flew out of sight.

Merry Christmas Snowy Owl!

Merry Christmas Snowy Owl!
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
 
One of my favorite Christmas presents......to see the Snowy Owl on St. Simons Island on Christmas Day!  Again Jesus answered my prayer and let me see him:) 

It was sunset, so there wasn't much light left.  I had been looking for him for two hours.  He had been hiding on Shipwatch's roof and suddenly popped up to the edge.  Thanks to Steve O'Cain and his family for spotting him! 

 The Snowy Owl started to spread his wings and flew right over my head!  My YouTube video: http://youtu.be/oUVAw2agTq0
 
 
The video is from far away, and it suddenly stops as I tried to take a photo as he flew overhead.  I panicked and did not think about getting a photo from the video:(

Sunrise With Mr. Snowy Owl

"Sunrise With Mr. Snowy Owl"

An immature male arctic Snowy Owl has found his way to St. Simons Island, Georgia.  His visit is rare.  I heard where he had been hanging out and went to the beach for sunrise photos and to find the Snowy Owl.  I spotted him on top of a condo near the coast guard station around 7:30 in the morning.
 
 
The Gackles must not be very intelligent birds because they were pestering him.  I guess they did not think they could end up as the Snowy Owl's breakfast!  I love the glow of the morning sun on the owl.
 
I showed several people walking by where the Snowy Owl was hiding.  Two people said they viewed it as a wonderful Christmas present.  They asked me how I found him and besides knowing where to look, I told them I prayed and asked Jesus to help me find him!!

Lily

My cousin's dog Lily was my photo shoot yesterday.  She is a cute three year old Yorkshire Terrier.  With the help of her mom and treats the day went well.
 
She loves to run, and we let her have freedom to get out her puppy power.

It was like she was saying, "Okay, I've sat like you told me to.....where's my treat?"

Never Ending

"Never Ending"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
 
I found a ladybug as I was exploring at The State Botanical Garden of Georgia last week.  I wanted to get a good shot of him on a stick.  When he would get off the stick, I would put it in front of him and he could climb on it again.  He probably thought the stick never ended,

I have never seen flowers that did not have leaves.  I think I was more intrigued by the flower at first.
