Longhorn in Bluebonnet Field

The bluebonnets are beginning to die away now as they only live about a month and a half or so.  They are spectacular when they are blooming!  And when the bluebonnets are blooming, I've always wanted to get the iconic Texas shot of longhorns in a field of them.  I finally got my chance!  A fellow photographer, T. A. Brown from Austin, told me about a spot near Georgetown where I could get a shot, so out I went!  As you can see, the bluebonnets are fading as they are no longer in full bloom, and the weedy grasses are starting to grow up around them, but I was happy to get what I could.  I'll definitely try again next year!
