Not on my Watch!

“Not on my Watch!”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I enjoyed the Mexican sunflowers in my backyard for the last two years. The birds and butterflies have enjoyed them immensely.

The ruby-throated hummingbirds love to feed on its nectar but also use it as a watchtower to fight off any intruders. This immature male was doing just that!

Anyone else missing these little guys?

On Jamaica’s Shore

“On Jamaica’s Shore”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I was on the beach in Jamaica photographing a starfish, when a local man walked by and ask, “Did that come from the ocean?” I explained to him that I bought it in a store and brought it with me.

Yes, it originally came from the ocean—just not that color:)

Catnap

“Catnap”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I found this black bear high in a tree in Cades Cove, Tennessee. I watched him eat wild cherries for thirty minutes until his tummy was full. A catnap was inevitable!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He had the hardest time getting comfortable in the crook of this tree and tried about six different positions.

After sleeping thirty minutes, his tummy alarm went off again. I watched him eat for about an hour longer before I left him to see what I could find next.

Lulu

“Lulu”

Three-toed sloth

Lulu lives on the tropical island of Costa Rica. She cooperated and let me take photographs of her—I even got to hold her. 


Her hair was coarse, and she weighed less than my eleven-pound dog. I now have a fetish for sloths!

 Three-toed sloths are aboral which means they spend most of their time in trees. They mainly eat leaves but also eat fruit and flowers. 

About every seven days, they come out of the trees to use the bathroom. They use their tail to dig a hole and do their business in the hole. Who knew?

Now, one hangs from my computer—only it’s stuffed!

Love Birds

“Love Birds”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

We visited the Aviario Nacional de Colombia last week. I was amazed at all the beautiful birds in Columbia.

I could have spent the whole day there, but we only had two hours. Our guide was super nice and let us go at our own pace. 

These chestnut-fronted macaws spent most of the time preening each other. Before I left, one macaw put his wing around the other, and they enjoyed snuggling. 

I love how he raised his feathers on his head and you could see the content in her eyes!
