There is nothing better than Texas in the spring, when the bluebonnets bloom. Everyone flocks to the fields to take photographs of their family and pets. I also do this but I also love all of the other visitors to photograph. There are always a ton of bees, ladybugs, and butterflies. This is just one of the little guys I caught on camera today!

My son, Duke, is now 24 years old. He was about 4 in this photo and it's my all-time favorite photo of him. We're from Texas and our state flower is the bluebonnet. I took him out one day to take some pictures and while he was posing for some similar to this, he put a long blade of grass in his mouth and said: "How 'bout one like this, Momma?" Hamming it up, hahaaa! That's my boy!
I love all flowers, but wildflowers are my favorite. I find myself taking many pictures of them. It's amazing just how many types there are, and how beautiful some are.
I spotted a bunch of these bright yellow faces on the side of a road, and grabbed my camera to get a few shots. I decided I wanted a close up of one also. Right when I clicked the camera, this little fella landed. I guess he liked the same one, too!
Many roadsides in Texas are blazing with color every spring. Bluebonnets and indian paintbrush are two of the major flowers. Thanks to First Lady LadyBird Johnson for the beautification of Texas highways.

We took this picture of some pretty bluebonnets along the side of the road.

This is a photo from our day trip to the Texas Hill Country. The bluebonnets have been so pretty this year!
