I love these flower specially in the field, which they looks wonderfully.
The bluebonnet was designated the official state flower of Texas in 1901. Also called buffalo clover, wolf flower, (spanish for "the rabbit"), bluebonnets are to Texas what the shamrock is to Ireland.
I love this flowers. They are very beautiful, if you seen them in the field.
The bluebonnet is not only the state flower - Texas has also designated an official bluebonnet tartan, song, city (Ennis, Texas), festival (Chappell Hill Bluebonnet Festival), and trail (also in Ennis). The bluebonnet flower is named for the color and sunbonnet-shaped petals.

po tej dlugiej zimie bardzo przyjemnie oglada sie takie zdjecia, na ktorych wiosna w pelni kroluje w przyrodzie. Z tego co widac Teksas cieszy sie piekna pogoda :-) Ladnie uchwycilas ten uroczy kwiat. Dobre makro z odpowiednio rozmytym tlem, ktore uwypukla rosline. Bardzo dobrze nasycone kolory.

Colors are very vivid in this photograph. in addition use of shallow dof has separated the subject from the background really well. Nice execution.

Interesting photo of these pretty blue flowers which you say are prolific in your area.
Well managed, super Pov,
Are these called Delphiniums by their Botanical name?
Trust you are well,

A very fine close-up on this beautiful flower. Perfectly exposed and with excellent control over depth of field. Superb colours and clarity.

wow! A beautiful bunch of flowers indeed. I like how you presented with shallow DOF. Great bokeh at background. Nice sharp flower definition. Great colour contrast. Excellent shot. Tfs.

Indeed very beautiful flowers! We could see them last year when we were in Austin around the end of March. A field full of bluebonnets is quite a sight!

wiosna ma swoje piekne oblicze,kiedy natura budzi sie do zycia(chociaz u was w Teksasie ze wzgledu na klimat to przejscie z zimy do wiosny nie jest az tak "mocne" jak np.u mnie w Niemczech)
Tym niemniej bardzo podoba mi sie i sam kwiat i zblizenie jakie tu zastosowalas oraz znakomita gra z glebia ostrosci,ktora pieknie wydobywa detale z glownego tematu.
Pozdrawiam serdecznie i zycze milego weekendu

Flowers are absolutely a female aspect, but I am also a great fan of flowers, not in house but in the garden.
Nice close-up picture with the perfect focus on the flowers with blur background.
Sharpness and clarity are extraordinarily lovely.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Thank you for posting this.
The area is raining today, but I am watching for a better weekend to enjoy being close to some TX wildflowers this season.
Please advise if you took this photo near SH249 to Austin, or along the I-10W from Houston to San Antonio.

Bon contraste des couleurs , une netteté bien défini par le fond flou
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-04-09 5:17
Love those flowers especially the colors. Nicely captured with good details and good use of the narrow dof. Well done, tfs.

I loved this photo which is particularly sharp and well exposed. The note is informative and allows us to understand why you made this shot.

quelles belles fleurs bleues superbe image et captage quelle finesse et vue ce bleu profond et le vert en fond sueprbe.
Bravo et amitié
ourania (48740) 2014-04-13 8:46
a very lovely picture, minimal, elegant and pleasing. The delicate flowers and their tender textures have been captured superbly against a harmoniously tinted backdrop that offers great contrast with its softness though. I like very much the rich colour of the little petals, the light was low but you managed it in an excellent way and achieved fine colours and atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
adramad (47650) 2014-04-13 9:06
Delicate and beautiful composition with this macro so ideal, that shows these beautiful flowers, which with its blue, emphasize the soft green blur.
Very well managed the brightness and sharpness, with a beautiful color, in these natural tones.

Hi dear Barbara,
At first view I thought these vibrant blue flowers were Lupins... aren't they gorgeous & the colour is so beautiful.
I like the way you have presented this image blurring out the background & keeping the focus on the flowers...
fabbs99 (17175) 2014-04-14 23:40
Nice colorful image of the colorful flowers.A nice and interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, beautiful light and color.Keep sharing.
delpeoples (59184) 2014-04-18 5:52
A beautiful macro, wonderful rich colours and excellent shallow depth of field. The two flowers look like twins, a lovely composition, well done.
Waylim (25502) 2014-04-18 13:55
Lovely image of the flowers, Not too many blue color flower. Love the lively color, full of live and spring atmosphere. I can imagine a while field of it. But it is nice to see a close up detail of these two stems. The soft background really brings out the sharpness and gives it a 3D quality.

Pamietam rzeczywiscie ze kazdy stan w USA ma swoj stanowy kwiat. Slyszalem ze zona ktoregos prezydenta zorganizowala akcje sadzenia kwiatow stanowych przy autostradach ale nie jestem pewien czy to prawda.
Piekna fotografia z przyjemna plytka glebia ostrosci.
ikeharel (74745) 2014-05-01 7:23
Splendiid blue/purple tone of the flower, in its natural environment and the green backdrop applied.
Hope you are well and soon show new stuff here.
