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.
