Seabirds | Shorebirds | Water Birds | Wading Birds | Waterfowl - Judy Royal Glenn Photography

Jesus is behind all I do as a photographer. I feel the Lord reveals Himself to me through His nature and feel this is a gift that allows me to see the raw beauty of creation through His eyes. He even allowed me to photograph two miracles at once! To view this amazing photograph, go to my "About Judy" page.

My favorite subject to photograph is bears, but I also love to photograph all wildlife, flowers, and birds—especially hummingbirds:) I also created the Hummingbird Trail at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, I teach a class about hummingbirds and the trail, and I also lead Hummingbird Trail walks:)

Amongst the Snails

While I was on St. Simons Island recently, I was very excited to see a bird I have never seen before. My husband and I were driving down Ocean Road when an unfamiliar bird ran out near the sidewalk. We stopped, and I excitedly jumped out to hopefully photograph it.

It was a clapper rail bird and had the cutest black chicks. The chicks were small and busily following their parents.

These birds care for their young in a different way. The parents divide the brood when they are about a week old and each parent looks after half the chicks.

I have heard this bird’s call when I have been crabbing on the island but never seen the bird.

Location: St. Simons Island, Georgia
