Bottled Up!

“Bottled Up!”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

The Lord made the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly such a spectacular process! The brilliantly colored yellow, green, and black monarch caterpillar meanders around devouring milkweed a million miles an hour. It then bottles itself up in a stunning chrysalis to later explode into a beautiful butterfly.

Tiny-Jeweled Flyers

“Tiny-Jeweled Flyers”

I am delighted to say the Humminbird Trail, which I designed, at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia is officially open this year. The trail maps are printed and waiting for visitors to get a glimpse of the tiny-jeweled flyers.

There are small numbers of hummingbirds. The best chance to see them in action is later in the season when lots of babies are born.

The hot markers to find them this week are #5 feeding on the purple salvia and feeding on the major wheeler trumpet honeysuckle at marker #19. This photo was taken Wednesday as I sat at marker #19.

Check out his face—it’s dusted with pollen!

Pounce

“Pounce”

My family gives me a hard time about talking to people while out shooting, but I’m an extrovert and people have all sorts of good information. While in Cades Cove, we stopped and talked to my favorite park volunteer Nancy a.k.a bear jam manager. 

Someone mentioned a coyote was walking towards the field where we were standing. My conversation abruptly stopped when someone spotted the coyote.

He was parallel to me in the field. I always like to shoot with my subject having room to walk into the frame. When he was getting too far in front of me, I would run parallel again until I was shooting towards him. It was sort of a cat and mouse game, but it worked.

He ended up catching a vole or some sort of small critter—ate it then went back to hunting.

Angel Cub

“Angel Cub”

I had a fun time in Cades Cove, Tennessee this week. One of my favorite shots is this cub. The branch makes him look like he has a halo over his head.

A group of us were standing outside our cars on the Cades Cove Loop Road when a man driving by told my friend there was a bear and her cubs in a tree at the road. We walked around the corner and found Charlotte and her cubs just as he said. She was super close, so we took some photos then backed down the steep hill to give her more room.

Charlotte is a beautiful bear with cinnamon coloring on her head and back. She is much different than the other mama bears.

What an amazing experience!!  Isn’t he adorable?

Clever

"Clever"

Capturing this photo of a snail on a poppy pod was a lot of fun. My friend, Heather and I went to the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, and she found many critters for us to photograph.

This snail was a great model. We put him on the pod and waited for him to come out of his shell. Heather said, “Do you want me to use my purple sweater as a background?” What a brilliant idea! You can even se our fingerprints on the pod.

I hope you like it.
