Judy Royal Glenn Photography
The more I photograph, the more I envision the shot I want. I try to make everything perfect.
For wildlife, I focus on the eye of the critter I am photographing. If the shot involves a flower, the flower has to be positioned just right. If I can, I move distracting leaves. A clean, pretty background is a must.
The last piece of the equation is patience. Sometimes, this is the hardest part as some photographs take hours waiting for a hummingbird to come to a certain flower. Sometimes the envisioned shot does not occur the first day I try. It took three days to capture this shot.
Patience paid off as I had my camera pointed at the Mexican sunflower yesterday and an immature ruby-throated hummingbird came to feed off the flower. This photograph was taken at marker #11 on the Hummingbird Trail at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia.
