Moments In Nature - Birds, Squirrels & Flowers
A Photographic Journey
by Photographs by Lil Judd
"Moments In Nature - Birds, Squirrels & Flowers" is a book which shows part of my adventures into Nature & Wildlife photography. Most of these shots are taken in 2008.
The book has 200 pages with 280 photographs of birds, squirrels & flowers. Over 25 bird species are represented;
Brown & White Pelicans, Northern Shovelers, Kestrels, Hummingbirds, Wigeons, Geese, Mallards, Osprey, Terns, Black-headed Grosbeaks, Hooded Orioles, Great Blue Herons, Gulls, Bald Eagles, Grebes, Coots, Avocets, Kingfishers, Double-crested Cormorants, Western Meadowlarks, Snowy Plovers, Snowy Egrets, & Stilts.
Most of which are shot in natural settings & some through a blind.
This is my little way of showing the beauty of Nature with the hope, that all of us will wish to protect them in the future.
I started photographing with a Kodak Instamatic when I was nine (9) years old. Won the money on Bingo with my grandparents & father. Over the years I kept photographing with different cameras which belonged to my father & the Kodak camera. I went to the University of Stockholm & studied Film Analysis when I bought my first real camera, a Nikon FM. My wish was to photograph Wildlife & Nature, but I had not money for such lenses. Then I moved to Los Angeles to study Film Production & graduated from Columbia College then located in Hollywood. My main interest was Cinematography & I kept practicing with my Nikon FM. Many years past & a few years ago I got a Nikon D200. I spent a few years getting to understand digital photography & about a year ago got involved in starting a photography group. Out of that came a lot of trips to locations all over Los Angeles. I was suddenly able to spend the money on the lenses needed for this kind of wildlife photography.
