Best Texas Bluebonnets Images for 2019

Bluebonnets in the Texas Hil Country – We came across this lush field of bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country on a ranch off of hwy 71 west of Austin. The sun was starting to get lower in the sky and cast a golden glow over the trees as it was going down but with enough light left for the blueblonnets. These are texas bluebonnets that grow through out the state but the hill country has some of the best when its a good year.

Bluebonnets in the Texas Hil Country – We came across this lush field of bluebonnets in the Texas Hill Country.  The sun was starting to get lower in the sky and cast a golden glow over the trees as it was going down but with enough light left for the blueblonnets. These are texas bluebonnets that grow through out the state but the hill country has some of the best when its a good year. It looks like this might be an average good year for the wildflowers so we are happy to finally see more flowers this year. We have had either drought or flooding both of which are not alway good for the bluebonnets and other wildflowers, however this years crop in the Texas hill country has been a pleasant surprise so far this year. You have appreciate how wonderful it is to take a drive in the hill country in springtime and see all these wonderful wildflowers just growing along the roads.  The wildflowers can be seen along the main highways in the cities or on the back country road anywhere from February through April.  We even have bluebonnet festivals just to show how much people in Texas love their wildflowers.

Poppies and Texas Bluebonnets – Poppies and Texas bluebonnets in the Texas hill country in late affternonn. We love this lone stalk of poppies with a backdrop of a field of texas bluebonnets on this ranch road. You can see the shadows as they cross over the field of bluebonnets with some bob wire and a horse shoe hanging on a post near by. Hanging the horse shoe on the post is suppose to mean good luck. So heres to having more good luck finding more texas wildflowers before the season ends

Hill Country Texas Bluebonnets  – We captured these wonderful texas bluebonnets west of Marble Falls in the Texas hill country. We pretty much thought that the bluebonnets were done for the season last year when a rain a few days before brought out this wonderful ranch full of bluebonnets. Now we almost didn’t make the trip but we decided one more trip into the texas hill country and we were lucky we found this wonderful field. The bluebonnets were thick with a few poppies and indian paintbrush but it was mostly texas bluebonnets with a back drop of mesquite trees which is what the hill country has a lot of. Also a small rusty post was in the ground and hanging from it was this horse shoe I guess it for good luck since we found this spot we felt like we had good luck too. To see more pictures of bluebonnets please visit our gallery on our website. beecreekphoto.com

Bluebonnet Country Road – Bluebonnets line the road in this Texas hill country backroad with this natural wildflowers. Today we had a nice blue sky as the sun was getting lower in the west. You can see the texas lupine in most areas of the state but the hill country give you the more rugged natural backroads to see them on which is my preference. Spring is finally here as the trees are finally starting to bud in the texas hill country along with these beautiful wildflowers.

Longhorn Close Up in Wildflowers – Texas wildflower and a Longhorn close up in the Texas hill country. We were driving the back roads and there was this small herd near Johnson City in a area with bluebonnets and indian paintbrush and this steer came in close to get a better look at us thankfully he was in the wildflowers. This longhorn seem slightly interested in what we were doing and wanted to get a better look before he meander away as all the other had done before him but he did posed for a few shots first standing in these texas lupines and paintbrush wildflowers.

As they all did after a short time he was moving on for greener grass away from our pesky camera. I think he was looking for a little cow candy but we didn’t have any so he lost interest pretty quick. We have come to love these longhorn cattle with these big impressive horns and when we can capture them in a field of texas wildflowers it is even better.

Big Bend Bluebonnets at Cerro Castillian – Bluebonnets at the base of the Cerro Castillian in Big Bend National Park. You can see the big bend bluebonnets are going up the slopes of this mountain side and we love this nice patch standing tall right in front. Big bend is a favorite park to visit and capture the wonderful vistas but this year with the wildflowers it is most memorable crop of big bend bluebonnets we have ever seen. We had a wet fall which most contribute to this abundant wildflowers in well over ten years. The big bend bluebonnet is a taller species of texas lupine and a lot hardier to be able to take the extreme conditions. Lupinus havardii is a species of lupine known by the common names Big Bend bluebonnet and Chisos bluebonnet which are native to Big Bend and the Chihuahua desert area of texas but it only grows in this region. Big Bend is in far west texas and border Mexico so from central texas it is a good seven hour drive just to capture these great pics of texas.

Big Bend Bluebonnets – Big Bend bluebonnets panorama in Big bend National Park as the wildflowers climb up the mountain sides. The bluebonnets on this ridge had the Santa Elena Canyon and Cerro Castillian as the distant landscape. There is nothing like a mountain back drop for your bluebonnet images. Texas Bluebonnets were thick on the mountian sides off the ross maxwell scenic drive so we stopped to get some roadside photos and the next thing we know we have walk a mile up the mountain side. It was one of those moments when you look in another direction and there are even more blueboonets on another hill side or along a ridge that you just have to get too. It was an amazing site.

There is just something about being in the presents of mountaiin and desert landscape and throw in some bluebonnets and it brings the kid out in you it is kind of a magical event. This species of lupine grows taller than other texas bluebonnets they are several feet tall and there stems and seeds are much larger than other bluebonnet plants. Some of the comman name for these bluebonnet are the big bend bluebonnet, big bend lupine, chiso bluebonnet, and havard bluebonnet to name a few. Regardless of what you call them they are a wonderful site to see in this desert landscape. We have heard about how great these bluebonnets have been in the past but this is the first time in ten years we have seen them like this. In the past we only found a few in small patches along the roads. We are glad we made the eight hour drive down to catch them before they are gone.

Big Bend Bluebonnets Sunrise – The sunrise was just beginning to push through the clouds over the chiso mountain range near the landmark Cerro Castellan. The sky was getting this heavenly glow from the sun rays as they came through the sky just at the peak of the sun rising up. The Texas bluebonnets were flowing down the slope the valley below in this desert landscape scene. It was a cold morning to be standing and waiting for the sunrise to show and very quite till a coyotes pack began to yelp and howing right below us when a sudden sense of fear over came my other half as there were many yelps, all probably no more than 30 feet below us. Luckily for us they were not interested in us. Whew! This is a wild area and you are likely to run across all kinds of animals here including bear, wild hogs and mountain lions. Big Bend National Park was in full bloom with the big bend bluebonnets this year and it was lovely.

Texas Windmill and Bluebonnets 419 – We capture this great field of texa bluebonnets with a wind mill in the background and this nice oak tree for a iconic texas scene. There are lot of windmills in Texas but finding them in a field of bluebonnets is not as common so we felt lucky. The Texas hill country has it fair share of windmills but most of the time they are near electric lines, or hidden behind trees are in a state of disrepair from years of storms and high winds not in a field of bluebonnets so today we are lucky.. Today we found a nice one with a few clouds in the blue sky and nice field of wildflowers. This is the iconic Texas landscape scenery in the hill country in spring. If we could of just got a longhorn it would of been perfect.

We have traveled the backroads of the hill country always searching for good locations and today we found another good spot for the perfect texas bluebonnet landscape. In Texas the bluebonnet along with other wildflowers start coming out in the southern part of the state around Feb and slowly move north through May. Then we have the summer wildflower that start popping up but most consider the bluebonnet as the main attraction if we can find other flowers thats even better, but we gotta see the blue bonnets or we feel empty without it. In any case this was a great catch for a traditional texas bluebonnet landscape, It been a pretty good year but it fading fast in the hill country all good things must come to and end. Well at least till next year!

The sunset was going down in the sky it create this violet pink colors across the sky over this lush field of bluebonnets for a great landscape scene from the texas hill country.

Also note a rusted post with the horse shoe hanging on it, I suppose for good luck. Texans love their texas bluebonnets or lupines and this field is why we can’t get enough of them. They pop up year after year but not always in the same spot it kind of like a treasure hunt every year.

Bluebonnets and Hay Bales at Sunrise

This morning sunrise over these Texas bluebonnets and hay bales had a nice sprinkling of red through out from the Indian paintbrush which was a spectacular show of wildflowers on the rural back roads in our state. The morning sunrise created these nice sunrays that filter over the top of the trees and spread out over this large field of Texas bluebonnets and other wildflowers with these round hay bales in the field. We will show more of these images of the bluebonnet and hay bales over the next week in our photo of the day because they were so unique in this neck of the woods. This was the best field of bluebonnets we found this year so we came back several days to photograph it. Lucky for us the rancher gave us permission to come on his property and photograph this great field of wildflowers in this rural Texas setting. So of course we came back for a sunset photo too. You don’t see bluebonnets fields with hay bales like this in our area so this was a unique find in our quest for all images of wildflowers. When it comes to blueblonnets wildflowers Texans including myself go a little nuts over them, people come from all over to see them, take selfies in them, do family portraits, and for many other reason. In any case it is a very popular spring flower and there are people who follow the yearly wildflower reports like a bible just to find the best of the best every year. Now every years is not a bumper crop so it really depends on the weather, amount of rain we receive in the fall and again in the spring, and I have been told (not verified) they come up better every other year and if they were allowed to seed properly or not. The bluebonnets Lupines or Lupinus Texensis are the state flower of Texas. However, all lupines or considered the state flower in Texas. There are several other types in Texas such as the Lupinus Havardi or Big Bend Bluebonnet, the Lupinus Argenteus or silvery lupine, and several more but the most popular for most people is the ones in this field the Lupinus Texensis. As long as there are bluebonnets in Texas we will continue our quest to capture the best of the best every year.
