Texas Bluebonnets, Plus 1 Red Flower


No sun here the last couple of days, so I'm not on topic! As a matter of fact, it snowed here the day before Easter - crazy! Anyway, this is a patch of bluebonnets that are across the street from me. There are a few of these red flowers scattered in the patch, and they really caught my eye. Settings were RAW, 400 ISO, f/1.8, ss 1/2000, 50 mm lens. I really bumped up the contrast and saturation in PSE4. CC Please!

I like it. The contrast really helps bring out the focus of this shot. I'm wondering if I ever get to see any bluebonnets in South Texas ?????
Great shot!
