Upside Down Umbrella

“Upside Down Umbrella”
Picher Plant Flower

Pitcher plants are in a league all to themselves—after all, they are carnivorous. To stand even out more, they produce an upside down flower.

Happy Earth Day!

“Happy Earth Day!”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

What did you do to celebrate Earth Day? Did you get outside and enjoy the Lord’s spectacular nature He created?

I hiked to my 42nd waterfall with my husband. We sat in the shade, enjoyed a picnic on the rocks and enjoyed the view.

Busking

 
“Busking”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

Little did I know that I was intruding on this swan’s territory while standing on the bank of Swan Lake at Berry College. It is Berry College’s territory after all. Tell that to this swan and he will have a different opinion.

This gesturing is called "busking" and is part of the beginning of a mute swan’s threat posture. It can escalate into wing flapping and the swan tucking its long neck into its lifted feathers for protection as it charges towards the intruder.

I was there to photograph him, not to ruffle his feathers!

"Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always." Psalm 105:4

Can you imagine what our world would be like if everyone abided by this scripture?

The Next Fish Is Mine!

"The Next Fish Is Mine!"
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

This is the second year I have photographed the heron chicks born in this nest at Magnolia Plantation, in Charleston, South Carolina. Last year there were three chicks; this year there were two.
