You just thought you were through with these shots...









Saved a few of them for Shadow Shot Sunday.

I'll give you a few last cell phone pics of the bluebonnets in full glory this week...

I for one am glad to see more! That first image is so beautiful! I wonder if Bluebonnets would grow here, they are so beautiful in their natural setting~

mick said...

All nice photos but that first one is especially good.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

You can never have too many cows in bluebonnets pics! After all, the bluebonnets never stay very long.

pattib said...

The bluebonnets pics are gorgeous!

Tammy said...

I love the cattle! They don't seem to mind the camera; when I try to take a photo of some here, they freak out when they see the camera. The Bluebonnets are gorgeous!!

Eyeliquor said...

Awesome!
Have a great weekend :)

Jill said...

Terrific. Especially that last shot.

Linda said...

I always enjoy your farm life pics....keep posting them.

Amila Kanchana said...

Those Bluebonnets are unbelievable!

Comment1 said...

Wow, those horns are really bludgeoning!

Wanda..plain~N~simple said...

I would love to have a field of Bluebonnets, but only if the cattle came with it!

Fireblossom said...

Oh, don't have a cow! ;-)

Joop Zand said...

I like the composition from the first photo....the others are also very nice Theresa.

wish you and your followers a happy Easter.

warm greetings, Joop

Beautiful lighting on those "cattle" shots!
I wonder if bluebonnets would grow in Virginia...? Probably not, or they'd already be here.
Love them!

Eva Ason said...

I love these blue flowers, they're lovely.
I like the first photo, it's great.
Nice cattle even if they're in the wrong place eating away ;)
Have a lovely day!

Gone Country said...

I really like the composition of that first shot.

The cows are keeping their eye on you... too funny!

Pretty bluebonnets.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

I was hoping you weren't done,. I've always liked cows. Some people think they are dirty and smelly, too bad for them.

Mike said...

Are the first and last bull shots of the same animal? The first seems younger and smaller. Could be angle.

CameraCruise said...

Beautiful photos!
I especially like the bluebonnets.

Linda said...

I loved the shots - but I was fascinated looking at the shadow on the bull's face...looked like a mask! And of course, the bluebonnets are gorgeous...I love them!

Lynne said...

I enjoyed these as much, (maybe more) than the last "Ferdinand" bunch. The first one in this series is wonderful!

And the Blue Bonnet photos are perfect cell phone shots. Do the Bonnets keep their color, last long, a week or so?

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I love those Bluebonnets.

Paula said...

Beautiful pics!

Birdman said...

The cattle don't look too amused by your work.

Kathy said...

You certainly have a nice patch of bonnets. It's interesting that we're so close together but yet ours were practically gone almost a week ago. Today I doubt we'll only see one or two little topknots left!

Michael said...

cell phones have come a long way...wow

and the second steer pic is perfect

DJan said...

Those cellphone pictures are really good, especially the last one that had you laying down in the bluebonnets! And of course I enjoyed looking at the big brutes. :-)

Sandra said...

glorious blue bonnets, so appropriate for Easter, they have heir own Easter bonnets. you know you can post cows every day and I will never complain, that second one is my favorite from the first post. love that face and ruffle on the chest.

Ms. ~K said...

Love those blue bonnets...the cows remind me of Chick-Fil-A commercials!
"Eat More Chicken"
Happy Easter to you all!
~K

Barb said...

These are fantastic shots! I love seeing the cattle in the field of bluebonnets. The lighting is so soft in all of them.

RoeH said...

I just want to kiss that big guy right on the nose.

Denise at Autumn Sky said...

Bluebonnets are so special, I would love to have a field nearby to photograph.

Sarah (Nikki) said...

these are amazing shots...just when I was really getting into those cows....bam...the amazing flowers showed up. What a sight....a reminder of His beauty that's in everything....even those cows...Happy Easter

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

JUST GORGEOUS!!!!

Millie said...

Glad you saved some. They are wonderful! Of course, goats would be better. It's been a long time since you posted a goat.

wayside wanderer said...

Tell me you are getting a shot or two of you in the bluebonnets! We have a hill covered in them down the road and I really need to get down there...but my kids think they are two big (except maybe the love birds) so I was thinking I would take the ducks. =)

Ron said...

Not bad picks for a cell phone!

robin. said...

i want fields of the bluebonnets...these shots, despite the cows ;-) are amazing!!!

John McElveen said...

Stunning! I Love every single picture!

John

JM said...

Great composition on top and the series of blue flowers is just gorgeous!

Kelly said...

I never grow tired of seeing cows. Their contentment is contagious! Now I AM entertained by horns on cows since ours don't have them. ;)

Arija said...

Love that horned bull. Those bluebonnets look just gorgeous but as far as I know the lupin plant is toxic to grazing animals although the seed is great sheep feed.

Have a wonderfully Happy Easter!

Sylvia K said...

Gorgeous captures of the bluebonnets and I always love these cows! Great series of both for the day! Enjoy your weekend and have a Happy Easter!

Sylvia

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

All photos are fabulous, but my favorites are the first and last. The blue bonnets are beautiful. I wish we had them here in Minnesota.

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

Beautiful field of bluebonnets!

Michaele said...

I just love the color in these photos! What a beautiful scene.

Dianne said...

a field of beauty!
I love those critters and enjoyed seeing more

Carole M. said...

Brita said...

Farm Girl said...

I just love those shots of the blue bonnets. So pretty, I see why it is the state flower of Texas.
Those really are beautiful cattle.
Someone has a very nice herd.

Betty Manousos@ CUT and DRY said...

have a great weekend, my sweet friend!

blogitse said...

Oh boy, these are cool shots, all of them!
Happy weekend!

Cassie said...

Oh we can never get enough of the cow (& bull) Shadow Shots. he he. The bluebells are gorgeous!! Happy Easter.

latebloomerbuds said...

You're just full of bull these days T! Margie

ladyfi said...

Those bluebonnets are just wonderful!

bailey-road.com said...

I love the way you framed the cattle in the first image. It makes a beautiful, pastoral scene. The bluebonnets sure are pretty!

de engineur said...

Whoa they look at you as if they are posing

Donna said...

Oh, but sharing the bluebonnet photos made this post so worth it! Beautiful! Do they have a scent?

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

Bluebonnets, green fields and cows! I could look at them all day~seriously! I do look at cows and green fields every day but no Bluebonnets! Dang!

georgettesullins said...

The cows are so lovely and soft. Do you ever draw their faces? I love the lines of their ears and eyes. The bend of that one tree branch/trunk is lovely too, how it frames your herd.

joo said...

I love these photos! Cows look so pretty in the flowers:)

~mel said...

Cows, fences and bluebonnets ~ can't get much more Texas than that!

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, Can't get too many bluebonnet pics! Cows ... well, as long as I don't have to feed 'em or take care of 'em, then they are OK too. Now, I finally got around to taking your advice and got rid of the word verification on John's Island! Yea! Have a great day down in Texas! John

Jo's World said...

You can't have too many cows for me. When I see them I don't think about prime rib or fine beef, rarely ever eat it, I just like the way they look and grow and observe their world. Dairy cows do it for me too! Cheers and hugs,
Jo, Stella and Zkhat

frayedattheedge said...

I love the cattle - quite different to ours here in Scotland.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I don't think I could ever get tired of looking at those beautiful Bluebonnets! Awesome photos.

Tombstone Livestock said...

Calf in first picture has eye on you, great composition. Even cell phone pic of blue bonnets is great. Have a great Easter Weekend.

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Cool pics, love that they just stand there looking at you! (Better than running after you I suppose:@) Happy Easter!

SweetMarie said...

These are the best cow pics! They're all so cute! Those Bluebonnets are so pretty! I don't know if we have them here in Florida. Happy Saturday Theresa!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I'll not grow tired of cow pictures. The tree rats is a different story. Like that last flower foto a lot.

barbara l. hale said...

Wow! Those blue bonnets are fantastic! And the cows aren't bad either.

Patty Woodland said...

The bluebonnets look like a kind of hyacinth. Do they smell?

Betty Roan said...

You can never see too many cow, bull, or bluebonnets. I swear I saw a bluebonnet up here yesterday, but my picture didn't turn out. ;(

Kerri said...

Moo! I LOVE 'em!

Sandra said...

Absolutely love all the photos! But the last one is brilliant!

Linda said...

Your photos prove that weeds can be beautiful. :)

Jeevan said...

wow! That's beautiful capture on the Bluebonnets and Bulls esp. I liked the bull with horns... It looks majestic, strong and innocent :)

Paula said...

Did they come back for more? *JEEZ*
Those bluebonnets are gorgeous!

Daniel LaFrance said...

A field of dreams rich in Bluebonnets. Gorgeous!!!

That richness is no doubt a courtesy left behind by the cattle highlighted in your other photos. :)

Andrew said...

Your bluebonnets are fantastic to see... our bluebells will be out soon but the display as beautiful as it is nothing like your lovely last shot.

ellen abbott said...

not enough rain down here for bluebonnets. but the evening primrose are very pretty and the coreopsis too.

c. Joy said...

I know you've heard it before... that's a lot of bull - and heifer - bovine.

Kay said...

The bluebonnets are beautiful. We call them blue lupine here in SoCal.

rkbsnana said...

What were you wearing? They're all looking at you like they've never seen anything like it. Blue bonnets are beautiful. What's up with Texas getting them anyway? We're right next door...kinda'

polkadotpeticoat said...

These are my absolute favorite....

It's me said...

Wowwwwwww...great pictures......happy easter days......love Ria...xxx..

ShySongbird said...

Lovely photos again Theresa. Who would have thought cattle could look so pretty but those certainly do with the lovely Bluebonnets. They look very much like our Lupins which only grow in gardens here.

I've been looking through the photos you posted since my last visit and I particularly liked the ones of the Bluebonnets with your gorgeous dogs.

tunisian said...

OH Oh Oh
I love so much your picture
so good that I can find the words to express it
Hope that we will be friend
have a nice day

Joan said...

Love them all!
Yesterday I was at my brother's place. Two week old baby goats. It was so fun to watch them run and jump around.

Pat Tillett said...

Nah! not a problem! You had some great early morning or afternoon light, that's for sure!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I also love your pictures!! I cannot believe how beautiful the bluebonnets are--I've never seen them in anything but pictures--I may have to plan a trip to Texas to see my family next spring! :-)

Again a lot of great photos, the colors are very beauty, so soft and yellow :D

Carletta said...

Have you become a cattle whisperer! :)
Really - wonderful cow portraits. I like the ones of the cow and bluebonnets together.

Giga said...

To teraz się wcale nie dziwię , że Ferdinant lubi niebieskie kwiatki, bo są śliczne. Zdjęcia ich są wspaniałe. Pozdrawiam.
So now I am not surprised at all that Ferdinant like blue flowers, because they are beautiful. Photos of them are wonderful. Yours.

Kelly said...

...aaaaaahhhhhhhh....I'm totally in love. Those cows are are so gorgeous. I love them!!

Bob Bushell said...

Beautiful images of cows and the flowers in the field.

lisa said...

These are wonderful photographs!

Ellie said...

Oh I love these T, such a pretty wee flower.

Angela Häring-Christen said...

What for wonderful blue flowers in the grass and the cow pictures are great.
In Switzerland:
The Ester bunny (the parents) hides the chocolate bunnies and eggs and children are looking for.

Honest Abe said...

I like the cattle and are these a breed similar to the longhorns? I also like the bluebonnets. Mother lived in Texas and liked to see them.

Larry Howard said...

That Short Horn bull looks good out there with those red and black cows. The blue bonnets look good also. Please stop by and read about Red Dogs next adventure.

Inger said...

The last bluebonnet pictures really give you the impact of these flowers. It must be just gorgeous to see them live. I would never tire of the cattle pictures. Happy Easter!

Cheryl said...

Some of these take my breath away.

rainfield61 said...

A sea of purple flowers.

If I can, I would like to surf and swim, in it.

parker said...

Wonderful captures of the Bluebonnets! Nicely done!

Michelle said...

I really like that first shot from between the trees! Looks like you were spying.

LittleThingsOfLife said...

Great photos of the cattle, as always -- but the bluebonnets are just extraordinary!!! We have some down here in SE Texas, but I can't imagine living where there are fields full of them. Thanks for sharing.

I hope you didn't have any bad weather during the tornadoes last week!

Janie said...

Those Bluebonnets are so beautiful, I am jealous. That blue is like the cats meow...
The horns on the cows are pretty bold, and how could we get tired of seeing more cows and the land there in Texas?! Never.

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

Lovin' your shadows today :) They were MOOOOO-ving! {sorry, couldn't help it!!}

Susan said...

I would not want to piss off that bull! I love the pictures! The bluebonnets are so pretty!

Susan said...

PS: Happy Easter dear friend!

Randy said...

Those flowers are just wonderful.

Deb said...

great shots all of them...I never get tired of cows or bluebonnets..

Annette said...

I love those shots of the cattle

Candy C. said...

That last bluebonnet picture ought to be shown on Texas Country Reporter, it is lovely!! :)

Nancy said...

These are calendar material. Really pretty, Theresa.

Becca said...

I NEVER get tired of shots like this! Remember...I'm a city gal? Don't laugh, but I always think cows are so cute, do they let you pet them? LOL Love those blue bonnets...wow!

Charlotte said...

Bulls, cows and bluebonnets what more could one ask for.

Ann said...

I am more interested in the Bluebonnies. They OK for the cattle?

Bernadine said...

Beautimous!

Y Otros Paisajes.. said...

Oh...I'm glad you had more of these: love the cattle and the blue little flowers. Never too much...

Have a wonderful Sunday Theresa,
Isabel

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Love that last shot- just absolutely gorgeous!

Hilke Breder said...

Beautiful spring meadow!! Love the cattle too. I guess your part of TX did not get hit by the drought

Michelle Renee said...

Wow...I would love to see those bluebonnets in person. What a treat to have so many!

Happy Easter, Theresa.

Liz said...

Not crazy on the bulls but I love the expression on the cows faces. When we visit the country, I take so many... I love the way they loook at you as if to say, "What are you looking at??"
Those Bluebonnets are so gorgeous!!

Rose said...

Oh, my goodness, Tex...I would never tire of either of these. I love the lighting with the cattle...and I love those bluebonnet shots.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Never too many of either cattle or bluebonnets! I took some pix of some kind of longhorns yesterday near the Everglades -- thought of your pictures as I snapped.

LOVE the new header shots --

Joe said...

I like the cattle shots.

Sandy said...

While the blubonnets are beautiful...I love the cattle shots! I have some weird fascination with pictures of cattle.

heyBJK said...

That's a good looking bull! They appear to have plenty to graze on, too. Your last shot of the bluebonnets is gorgeous!

chubskulit said...

Must be so relaxing to see this beauties!

Your beautiful contribution to Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is greatly appreciated!
Rose
One of my shadow posts, your comment makes me happy.

pattisjarrett said...

Some of those cows are just too darn cute. (Never thought I'd say that!) Love those bluebonnets!

Wolfsrosebud said...

Fjällripan said...

So wonderful photos! The cattle is so beautiful and the blue flowers soo lovely :)

Like your new look on the blog to!

Rohrerbot said...

Did you get a new camera?? Beautiful shots.....really love the cows in the bluebells in the background....nice!!!

Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

Great photos! The cattle are beautiful and so are the bluebonnets. This is the first time I've seen a bluebonnet up close...are they a part of the lupine family? They're beautiful!

Marie said...

Wow! Those bluebonnets are just awesome! I can never get too much of them! And, I love the peaceful, grazing cows. All that lush green grass, too!
