Cactus (Mexican) Poppy and Bluebonnets
This year in the Hill Country, the Cactus Poppy is really taking off. This pano taken on a dirt road near Loyal Valley, TX. Bluebonnets mingled in with the Poppies. An old lady drove by in her beat up pickup and warned me about snakes. She mentioned that she has killed several on her ranch so far this year. A few years back, she was bit by a small rattler, and was careflighted to San Antonio for a few days. "No big deal" she said!
