Super Blood Wolf Moon of 2019

“Super Blood Wolf Moon of 2019”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I wasn’t planning on photographing all the phases of the total lunar eclipse of 2019, but I withstood the cold weather gladly as I watched the amazing spectacle.

As the events unfolded I said, “Gosh Lord, your nature is so amazing!” He can be seen so clearly in His nature, and He shows Himself to me this way all the time! 

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature —have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” Romans 1:20 

Do you know Him?

A Gaze

“A Gaze”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I love looking at an animal in their eyes. There is just something to it.

I photographed this white-tailed deer in Cades Cove, Tennessee on the first day of spring. I figured if I posted snow photographs that maybe, just maybe the snow will come that is forecasted for next week. 

Fingers are crossed! Let it snow!!

Let it Snow!

“Let it Snow!”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I photographed this snowman in Cades Cove, Tennessee on the first day of spring last year. I figured if I posted snow photographs that maybe, just maybe the snow will come that is forecasted for next week. 

We don’t get snow that often in Athens, Georgia, and I may have to drive farther north to photograph it. Fingers are crossed! Let it snow!!

Inquisitive

“Inquisitive”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

While I was in Columbia at the Aviario Nacional de Colombia, this collared aracari was inquisitive and kept an eye on us. Our guide figured I wasn’t ready to leave and let us go at our own pace. After the group left, and we had the birds all to ourselves.

He did not mind me photographing him. I kind of wonder what this little guy is thinking.

Looking Forward to 2019

“Looking Forward to 2019”
Cuban Bullfrog – juvenile

While on Grand Cayman, we hired the nicest guide, Geddes Hislop, who took us birding. Look him up if you want to see some great birds on Cayman! 

I have some beautiful shots of the birds on Cayman, but I am also glad he showed us many other subjects to photograph as well. 

While we were at the Botanic Park, I was photographing a flower when I noticed this Cuban bullfrog trying to take a nap in the safety of the flower’s petals. 

It took forever to get the final image I wanted. The top petal, which was folded on top of him, kept falling down when I lifted it. He was probably terrified!

I am very thankful for what the Lord shows me or brings to me. I can’t wait to see what He has in store!

Looking Back to 2018

“Looking Back to 2018”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I am thankful for the amazing wildlife and landscapes I captured in 2018! I am glad I got to travel to different countries and photograph the nature there —I’m ready to go back!

Even though black bears still have edged out hummingbirds as my favorite subject to photograph, this year, monarch butterflies have tied for second place with the hummingbirds. I am so passionate about them because of the loving care I took in raising them. I watched their transformation before my eyes. One minute they were caterpillars, the next they were amazing butterflies. God’s nature is so incredible!!

On a personal note, it was a rough year with a lot of pain. It took almost 6 months to get rid of my lockjaw, and I am going on two months of nerve pain shooting down my arm for carrying my heavy gear and another bag. 

It is getting better, and I am looking forward to a healthy near year!

My Favorite Five – “Lounging in my Jammies”

My Favorite Five – “Lounging in my Jammies”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

The final one! Did one of your favorites make it?

I decided before I post my best of nine for 2018, I would post my favorite five posts from 2018 and see what the difference is. It was hard making my decision and when I started compiling them, I noticed a trend. This year was the years of firsts. It was my first time raising monarch butterflies, photographing frozen soap bubbles, and getting to hold Lulu, a three-toed sloth, then photographing her. It was only my second year photographing black bears. I guess they are my new loves and that is why they all made my favorite five!

Backstory:

“This black bear loved eating all the cherries out of this tree. He came back day after day and filled his tummy. When he ate enough, he took a nap in the crook of this tree.”

My Favorite Five – “Lulu”

“Lulu”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography
Three-toed sloth

I decided before I post my best of nine for 2018, I would post my favorite five posts from 2018 and see what the difference is. It was hard making my decision and when I started compiling them, I noticed a trend. This year was the years of firsts.

It was only my second year photographing black bears. I guess they are my new loves and that is why they all made my favorite five!

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!

Backstory:
Goliath was a very large monarch caterpillar. He was nicknamed Fat Boy by my husband and me. I thought it would be nicer to have a more majestic name, hence the name Goliath. His Monarch Watch tag number is ZEU 843

"The Lord used a total stranger named Stacy to help me get this shot.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A mama bear and her two cubs were deep in the thicket and were very difficult to photograph. As I was walking near a truck, a guy behind me mentioned it would be nice to shoot from the back of the truck. I said out loud, “It would be nice to shoot in the back of the truck!”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The guy had his window down and overheard what I said. As I passed, he said, “Ma’am?” I backed up a few steps to hear what he was going to say. He said I could get in the back of his truck to shoot and stand on his toolbox.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, you would have to imagine me standing with my camera and tripod on his toolbox while I photographed this little fellow! I’m sure it was a sight to see!"

Eyes Fixed

“Eyes Fixed”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I found this beautiful black labrador retriever while I was on the beach on St. Simons Island, Georgia. She was in the distance enjoying the water.  

Her owner, David, was resting on the beach. When I told him I was photographing birds, he suggested I photograph Bea because she was as close to wildlife as I could get. She had her eyes fixed on something!

Hidden?

“Hidden?”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

I love when wildlife stops moving thinking that I can’t see them. I get it. They do not know my intentions, and by becoming motionless, maybe they will be less easily recognized or detected.

This Eastern cottontail rabbit was in the tall grass and hoped I did not see him. He did not trick me!

I drastically edited this photograph in two different ways. I think I know which one I like best. Which one do you like best the normal edit or the “artsy” one??

Freedom

“Freedom”
Judy Royal Glenn Photography

“Freedom”, Georgia Southern’s American Bald Eagle, flew over Paulson Stadium Friday at the end on fall commencement and landed on the 20-yard line where his handler was waiting. My son, Ashton, also soared high and graduated summa cum laude. I am so proud of his accomplishments and can’t wait to see where he will land.

Back history - “Freedom” was found just a few weeks old and had been knocked out of the nest. He suffered infection, and injury to his beak, therefore could not be released in the wild.
